I used your recipe for pickled squash. When finished I vacuum seal the lids on, not your typical canning method. Do you think they will be good this winter kept on a storage shelf?
By Edward S.
I don't think it's a very good idea to keep them on the shelf. I think they will be better in the frig. I do believe the heat in (canning or pickling) is what kills the germs.
You can not vacuum seal any wet foods.

I made yellow squash pickles once. They turned out beautifully. Had lots of compliments on them. I simply used a regular Bread & Butter Pickles recipe. Just substituted yellow squash for the cucumbers the recipe called for. Best of Luck!!
I ran out of sugar so I used maple syrup. I like it very much. I used 1 and half cup of maple syrup, and increased my vinegar to 1 and half cup to make up for the less syrup. What do you think, will it work? I hope so, I can't handle the sugar but the maple I can.

I need a good recipe for pickling squash.
Can I use Mrs. Wages Bread and Butter Pickle recipe/seasoning to make pickled squash or squash relish? Has anyone ever used it and how did it turn out?

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