    Hetta's Note:

    In South Africa we braai instead of barbeque, but it "boils" down to the same method. We prefer an open fire to a barbeque kettle but this recipe will work equally well which ever method is being used. This is a quick way of adding vegetables to your braai and so easy that the kids love to do this as part of their duties.

      I am an American living in SA and had no idea how to cook gem squash! I tried with corn & cheese but adding garlic & butter per your instruction made it delicious. My husband said that this is a keeper for our next braii. Thank you!!
