Caramelized Summer Squash

 1 large or 2 medium Witten’s Yellow Squash
 1 medium Sweet Onion
 4 tbsp Butter
 1 ½ tbsp Brown Sugar
 1 tsp Salt
 ½ tsp Pepper

Cut off end of squash, slice in half, then again in half lengthwise. Cut into half circle slices.


Slice the onions into smaller sized pieces.


Add butter to a large sauce pan ( I use my 12” cast iron) and heat over medium heat.


Add onions and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes.


Add squash, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir, cover, and cook for about 20 minutes, until squash is very soft.


Uncover and continue to cook for 5 minutes to let the juices evaporate slightly. There will be some liquid in the pan but it should be thicker than water, almost like a glaze.


Season with more salt and pepper, if needed, and serve immediately.
