    I'm most likely moving here in the next few months (90% chance), I just planted the fall crop of zucchini which will be ready in a month. I'd like to be able to pressure can it and take it with me. My mother used to can squash in 1/4 slices packed in water, and the stewed version we like for years with no problems. I can't find any mention of summer squash in the pressure canning sections of my books and I found this on line http://www.paulnoll.com/Oregon/Canning/canning-squash.html (this is exactly like her recipe) but I've also read that summer squash canning is not recommended.

    Which is it? Yes or no? Doesn't really matter either way because I will have the dehydrators running with the zucchini anyway so that I can take it in one form or another. I just want to check to be sure.

    And let's add..... moving cross country and taking a freezer full of produce is not a feasible option. I've done it a few times already, I know my limits [​IMG] So NO freeze it suggestions please.

    I have canned yellow summer squash before to use for casseroles and it worked fine. I am old school so it may not be recommended now possibly because they also no longer recommend cold pack canning for anything.
