Patty Pan Squash (in German: Pattison) is a small, scalloped, flat summer squash. The word Pattison derives from the French term for a cake that is shaped by a scalloped mold. This type of squash is usually harvested between June and September at a young, unripe stage, when they are tender and tasty. In haute cuisine, patty pan flesh is scooped out and mixed with garlic and spices prior to being served in the scooped out shell. The squash is a good source of essential nutrients, such as magnesium, niacin, and vitamins A and C. In Polish and Ukrainian cuisine, patty pans are pickled in spiced vinegar.
