Yield: 8 to 10 Servings

Since Mountain Bummy squash is very good in soup, especially when shredded, the following Pennsylvania Dutch recipe is not only frugal in its use of ingredients, but it will pass the vegetarian test and actually improve in flavor after standing a day or so in the refrigerator. You can add a little pickle juice or vinegar to give it a slightly sour flavor.
