Pickled Squash Recipe

Does anyone have a recipe for squash pickles? These are made with the yellow crookneck squash with onions and made like pickles.


Thank you,

Pickled Squash Recipe

My husband pickles these crooklike squashes otherwise known as summer squash. All he does is cut them into bite size pieces and put them in canning jars just like you would pickle cucumbers. He uses onions, garlic, and hot peppers, also, in the mixture. He processes them as if you were pickling cucumbers, using the same spices and fluids.

Pickled Squash Recipe

  • 2 lbs. fresh firm squash
  • 2 small onions
  • 1/4th cup salt
  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 3 cups of cider vinegar

Wash squash and cut in thin slices. Peel onion, then slice very thin and add to squash. Cover squash and onion with water and add salt. Let stand 2 hours and drain. Bring all ingredients to a boil and heat 5 minutes. Pack into jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Screw cap on firmly. Process 15 minutes in a boiling water bath. (06/13/2006)
