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 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?

You can not vacuum seal any wet foods.
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.
Jodi from Gary, TX
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.

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)
