“A wonderful side dish that I make as soon as the yellow squash start coming in. When I first started making this about 30 years ago, I used the bacon grease. I found I like the margarine better and I like the squash to cook so that you have a few browned pieces in. Oooohh, that gives it so much flavor!”
