Dear Timaree: I have zucchini growing like crazy in my backyard. How good is it for me, and what can I do beyond zucchini bread? (It is too hot to turn on the oven!)
Although they can be interchangeable in recipes, the three main types of summer squash include zucchini; crookneck, which are typically yellow in color; and pattypan, which resemble little flying saucers and can have a slightly sweeter taste. All parts are edible, including the skin and seeds, so preparation is easy with no waste.
