No, haven't tried it yet, but I will and let you know.
I have golden crookneck summer squash this year and they taste like fresh chestnuts (if you have a reasonable imagination)
You eat those like courgettes when they are about 6" long

I've never tried any summer squash and I wasn't growing any winter ones either this year (got sick to death of them!). However there's something in one of my flower beds that I was waiting to see what it was - I was guessing a melon or pumpkin and now it's got leaves too big for a melon, so the burning question is whether it is a butternut or a potimarron and whether I pull it up or let it run rampant all over the lawn.... :lol:

We had some on Saturday, ones ranging from 2" to 1" in diameter, including one that still had a fresh flower attached.
Sautéed them in a little olive oil and they were .................. totally tasteless.

They did have a nice texture when raw though, sort of softly crisp, so might be nice in a salad.

I have about 10 which are swelling fast, a couple of which are football sized already, so I'm busy chopping off fresh growths and deflowering :lol: every morning to stop them producing more.

Ah thanks for doing the totally tasteless experiment for the rest of us! :lol: Yes they do grow pretty well and fast, don't they?
