Baked Squash

Cut in pieces, scrape well, bake from one to one and a half hours, according to the thickness of the squash; to be eaten with salt and butter as sweet potatoes.

Fried Squashes

Mrs. F. M. Cragin.

Cut the squash into thin slices, and sprinkle it with salt; let it stand a few moments; then beat two eggs, and dip the squash into the egg; then fry it brown in butter.

Summer Squashes

Cook them whole; when tender, if large, skin and remove the seeds; if small, this will not be necessary; drain and press the water out with a plate; then put them in a stew-pan, and season well with butter, pepper and salt and a tablespoon of cream.
