Directions for preparing fried squash

Peel and cut your squash in cubes.

Mash some garlic. Fill a bowl with water and add some salt and the garlic. Put the water in a pot and let it boil. When boiling add the squash cubes and let it boil for 5 minutes. It it’s very soft squash you might have to take out earlier. You don’t want it to soft before frying.
