Gold Squash Shoots
Choose 4oz., 8oz., or 16oz.
Golden squash shoots have thick, juicy stems top with paired, long leaves that angle up steeply into a cupped shape. They have a mild, herby flavor with just a hint of bitterness on the finish.
Store squash shoots in your refrigerator in their plastic clamshell. Note: Extended periods of light exposure can change these shoots’ color from gold to green.
Approximately five days.
RECIPES & TIPS
Use golden squash shoots stacked, piled, or otherwise arranged as a garnish. Besides putting them on top of food or floating them in soups, you can arrange them below food as a flavorful bed for meat, poultry, or seafood.
You can also add them to salads by either piling them on top or tossing them with the other greens. Use them instead of sprouts or lettuce on sandwiches to give them a more elegant appearance and interesting texture.
