Crookneck (Summer) Squash

The Crookneck squash are some of the oldest squash still being grown. Seeds were brought over from Europe and cultivated in the Americas as early as the 1500’s. A crooked neck comes from the twisted and bent neck of the gourd, round at the bottom providing lots of good meat without a whole lot of seeds. Maturing does result in more seeds and a stringier texture, but that only occurs once it has gone WAY too long. Pick them small, and they are the best thing for a summer stir-fry or vegetable salad.
