Fried squash is one of the best foods of the summer! Get fresh squash if at all possible from a garden or farmers market. If you purchase it at the store, but sure it's firm and not soft.
Wash and cut off the tips on both ends. Slice into medium slices. Don't cut them too then or you'll just end up with burnt crisp of squash.
Toss the squash in a few spoonfulls of corn meal and salt and pepper to taste. It doesn't take much corn meal, just enough to coat each piece.
Fry on medium heat in a shallow pan of oil. Place the squash in one layer and cook until it begins to brown. Flip over and cook the other side. Don't cook too fast or it will just burn.
Remove from the grease and place on a plate covered with a paper towl to collect the extra grease. You can add more squash as you take finished pieces out of the pan, just keep rotating them through until all finished.
