What Is Succotash?

Succotash is a recipe that has SUMMER all over its name. It is a popular dish in the South although it originated from a Northern Native American word msickquatash, which means “a dish of boiled or stewed corn”.

It’s a simple dish using a corn and beans combo along with other easy-to-find vegetables. In other parts of the US like Pennsylvania and New England, Succotash is a traditional recipe on Thanksgiving Day. But over the years, it became a fresh wholesome dish, especially during BBQ days and summer parties.
