In the mid-Atlantic coastal area, we make our fritters with raw grated squash. I didn't find any recipes here that did, so I hope you will try these. Mom always made a huge batch of these for us. She had the magic touch! I always look forward to making squash fritters every summer. Note: I use either Canola oil or olive oil to make them healthier. I still use the butter because the fritters just taste better fried in butter. Even better, go out in your garden and bring in fresh squash to make this dish! Note: Corrections on July 17 include: 1 egg, beaten and 1 tsp. baking powder I cannot believe I left those ingredients out - I must have been tired. Sorry.
