Creamed Squash

The recipe was an absolute wonderful find from SP's family. I am thinking this recipe came from Trudy, and we ate it at Great Uncle Julius's 95th birthday party. I had raved about it when eating it, and a few months later, Trudy brought this recipe to Barby so I could have it. It is wonderful!

1/4 pound lard
2 good size onion
1.5 Tablespoons paprika
6 to 7 medium sized yellow squash, grated
5 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup flour
1/2 pint cream
1/4 cup milk

  1. In deep saucepan, fry onions in lard until golden brown.
  2. Added grated squash to onions.
  3. Fill pot with enough water to cover squash.
  4. Stir in vinegar and salt.
  5. Bring to a boil.
  6. Turn heat down to a simmer and let cook for about 45 minutes.
  7. In separate bowl, combine flour and cream, whisking out lumps.
  8. Pour into squash and stir well.
  9. Add milk for texture.
  10. Add pepper to taste.
  11. Cover pot and let heat until ready to serve.
