You all know I'm the Squash Queen of Robertsville, right?
This is only a portion of what we've harvested this year, even after fighting the bugs.
We've dehydrated them, grilled them, topped them with alfredo sauce
and baked them with brown sugar and butter.
I still have squash, squash and more squash.
I peeled, seeded and chopped them into thin strips.
I soaked them in the grape juice concentrate, simmered and drained.
I decided to try them three ways:
Sugared with powdered lemon drink mix.
I laid them on the dehydrator trays, set the temperature
and by morning, I had gummies!
My favorite have to be the ones with sugar and drink mix, they are a bit more sour.
That's how I like my dehydrated apples too, pre-treated with lemon juice.
It has more of a zing later.
I'll admit I have an addiction- I love Trolli Brite Sour Gummy Worms.
I could eat the entire package in one sitting (and have).
These have to be more healthy- right?
Guess what? They are good!
I took some into work and, believe it or not, some asked for seconds.
That's pretty special considering some crazy squash queen is offering you
wrinkled up purple strips that smell like a wine garden grape stomp!
This was fun to make and you can do it too!
