Pattypan Squash Fritters
1⁄2 cup milk
1 1⁄2-2 cups shredded pattypan squash
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Before shredding, cut out the stem of the squash, but there's no need to peel it.
If the squash is large, more than 4 inches across, you may wish to cut out the bigger seeds.
Preheat about 1/2 inch oil over medium-high heat in a deep skillet.
Beat the eggs, milk and oil into the squash in a large bowl, then add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix until combined with a few strokes.
Drop tablespoons of batter into hot oil-- in a big skillet, you can cook up to 8 at a time.
Cook until brown, turn with a spatula and cook the other side until brown.
Drain on newspaper or other suitable draining surface.
Serve with horseradish sauce, ketchup or whatever catches your fancy.
