One of my husbands, and daughters, favorite meals is fried summer squash. The hard part about growing your own is they come in fast and it is not possible to eat them all before they go bad.
This last year, I learned that our ancestors dried squash during the summer to eat during the winter. This year I grew far more squash than normal in order to dry it and save it up for winter. The process is quite easy.
Step 1. Wash squash in cold water and vinegar.
Step 2. Slice squash in small coin shapes, long slivers or small squares.
Step 3. Place squash on dehydrator trays and set dehydrator to 135F. The squash will be dry in 4-6 hours.
Step 4. Place squash in an airtight container and store in a dark cupboard.
