Directions

  1. Allow squash to rest for 5 minutes after cutting to release its moisture. Stir the flour, sugar, and salt together in a shallow bowl. Dredge the squash slices in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess, and set aside until needed.
  2. Melt the shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the squash in a single layer in the skillet. Cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

I am not going to badmouth this recipe too badly. The idea behind it is fantastic, but the subtle sweetness of squash is what makes it a summertime favorite and the amount of sugar in this recipe blankets that natural sweetness in the squash with an overwhelming sweetness that makes this dish almost a dessert as is. If you half or quarter the amount of sugar and maybe replace it with a little cornmeal, this fried squash is simple and amazing. This way the sugar carmelizes and accentuates the squash rather than candy coating it.

I grew up in the south and this was a summer staple for us. My favorite way to do it is to use dry pancake mix instead of the flour. It adds a little extra sweetness without being overpowering.
