I have been making Candied Squash for years. My family loves it. When I made it for my friends, at one of my get-to-gathers, they also loved it.

So, I decided to post it, and hope that you will love it!!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I saw this recipe and was curious how it would turn out. I was pleasantly surprised! It's got a nice, sweet vanilla flavor. Next time I may add a few chopped pecans for some extra crunch. This a super easy side dish!


2 qt
saucepan with lid
1 stick
1/2 c
1 to 1-1/2 c
light brown sugar
1 Tbsp
vanilla flavoring
4 medium
squash, washed and ends off, don't peel!!


1Wash your 4 medium squash.
2Place squash and other ingredients together.
3Get a 2 qt. saucepan with lid, and put 1/2 cup of water and a stick of butter. Place pan on med-high heat.
4Place 1 to 1-1/2 cups of light brown sugar (depends on how sweet you like it). Add 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavoring.
5Take your squash and cut the ends off, but, don't peel. Cut squash about 1/2 inch slices.
6Add squash to saucepan and stir about twice, to mix the sugar, vanilla and butter on squash.
7Let your water and other ingredients come to a slow boil. Turn your burner to low.
8Place lid on saucepan, and cook for about 20 minutes, or, until squash is tender but not mushy.
9Take a slotted large spoon, and dip out the squash into a bowl.
While I was posting this recipes, I set and ate the whole bowl. And being a diabetic, my sugar count will be sky high. BUT, is was SOOOOO GOOOOOOD!!!!
