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

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! The Test Kitchen
