Suki's Zucchini Bread
Squash is one of the greatest agricultural gifts given by the New World. It is native
to Mexico and Central America and was first grown 8000 -10,000 years ago. Four
species from the Cucurbitaceae family comprise what we call squash. Although most
of us would classify squashes as vegetables, botanists classify them as berries! They
are roughly divided into 2 groups. Winter squash or hard skin squash (Pumpkins,
Butternut, Acorn, Hubbard, etc.) can be stored for longer and must be cooked longer.
Summer squash (Yellow, Zucchini, Patty, etc.) is softer and required little or no
cooking. Here are some great recipes.
