    Last time I was home, my brother brought me about 30 lbs of zuchinni and crook neck squash, I fried it, baked it and was about squashed out, and still had 25 lbs. I have 4 girls at home who love dill pickles, so here is a recipe to use up your left over squash.

    2 quarts water
    1/3 cup pickling salt
    1 quart vinegar
    Dill
    garlic

    Peel squash and cut into slices (either way works). Add water vinegar, and salt bring to a boil, get a large bowl an pour boiling mixture over slices, add the desired amount of dill and garlic. You can spice this up with pepper slices.

    I placed a lid over a plactic bowl I used, after it cooled and left it on the counter. They taste just like dill pickles, on with a different texture to them.

    Well I think they sat for 2 days, before the girls broke into them.... Using squash, it is a little more pourous than cucks, they suck up the vinegar and spices pretty good, so it dont take them as long as regular cukes.

    Great Idea, how long would you leave them out before refrigeration, does the longer you set them out the better they taste?

    I let them set out for about 4-5 days then put them in the fridge...
