Yes, I am going to try it since some recipes can sub quite well. I did
find
that with Chayote Squash in place of apples, it tastes much more like
apples
than even zucchini does in dessert recipes. I wouldn't have thought of
hummus without your suggestion though. :-)

I've never tried Chayote squash. I'll look for it in the supermarket
next time I shop. It sounds interesting. Can it be used for other
types of dishes. We really don't eat dessert. Hubby doesn't like
sweets and I shouldn't have them, although I do like them.

I used Ozgirl's method so it was like apple pie filling. Only ever made it
twice. Although we did like it, I'm not a dessert person at all.


Thank you.

Apple Crumble Use ground (not too fine) almonds in place of normal
crumble ingredient. Nice warm with dollop cream.


Ohh that sounds good. My mother in law used to make fried apples.
I'm thinking this may be a good experiment to try with the Chayote, as
well as try the Apple Crumble with it.

Yes, Chayote can be used just like zucchini for au gratins, quiches etc. I
like to cook it, then throw it in the blender, add cinnamon and artificial
sweetener to taste and eat it like applesauce when I want something sweet.
It really does taste like applesauce, if you like applesauce. It can be
used
in the place of apples in just about any recipe because anything you can
do
with apples you can pretty much do with chayote as far as cooking goes,
grabbing one and eating it raw like you would an apple is not an option
though. ;-)

Cheri


Interesting. I went over the wikipedia and looked it up. I guess I
have seen these at the local Raley's and Save Mart stores. I just
never knew what to do with it. I like to try new veggies so this
will be on the grocery list this week. Thank you.
Karen


The best buy on them is at Food 4 Less. I bought some today for .79 a pound.

Thanks. We don't have a Food 4 Less any more in Tracy. There is a
Mexican grocery, Raley's, Save Mart and Safeway. I don't know what
they are charging, but I bet the Mexican grocery will have the best
price here. Their produce is pretty reasonable.

Yes, they are very popular in the Mexican groceries and probably good buys
there. Here Rancho San Miguel Market is way across town so I don't go there
often.

you could try endive or fennel or leaks as scoops instead of chips and pork
rinds or serve them as pre made bites with stuff already on them like melted
sharp cheese and bacon or shredded chipotle chicken..

I like pork skins with a variety of dips instead of chips.

I also tolerate popcorn very well

so those are my two go to game snacks for a crowd


I don't really tolerate popcorn well anymore. I usually have pork rinds
around, but am a bit tired of them.

Hi Ozgirl,

That sounds really good. My wife is scary allergic to almonds,
but she is fine with pecans.

Wikipedia has a nice write up on Chayotes. The wikipedia article

hot apple pie. Not a true rumor, but of interest to us as

Why is it, Julie, when you express an opinion about a food item it's
always "we" liked it or "we" didn't like it. You've posted many times
about the different likes & dislikes of your daughter, husband and you,
but when it comes to judging stuff you always write "we."

Would you make something a second time if only you liked it? Only your
daughter liked it? Or only your husband liked it?

I don't always do that. I tend to write about stuff that I like and don't
like but many times I have written things (perhaps not here) about things
that Angela or my husband does or doesn't like. They both like yogurt. I
hate the stuff.

Would you make something a second time if only you liked it? Only your
daughter liked it? Or only your husband liked it?


I frequently make things like that. I made chili this week. Angela hates
chili. And no, Angela is not required to eat things she hates. She had
vegetarian beans when we had the chili. Tonight I am making roasted
potatoes (which hopefully we all like) and for my husband some kind of
German sausages and sauerkraut. Angela and I wouldn't touch the stuff. I
make that garlic pasta for the two of them and *I* won't touch it.

If it is something that only I like and it makes a large amount, I am not
likely to make it. And the same would apply to them unless it was something
that they *really* liked and would be willing to eat it again and again.
Like my husband with pizza. Angela hates pizza and I can't eat pizza with
cheese. So he's the only one who ever eats it.

I put "we" in this case because my entire family, including extended family
tried the chayote and liked it. It is very rare in a family of picky eaters
for something like that to happen. But... While we did like it, it's just
not the sort of thing that we normally eat. I didn't serve it as a dessert
as we don't eat dessert. I served it with the Thanksgiving meal and we ate
it with but seeing as how it was like apples, it seemed weird to be eating
with as we never eat fruit with our meals either. I also found them to be a
PITA to prepare because they exude a sticky, hand irritating substance.

So... If I had a horking ton of the things growing in my yard and they were
free to me, I might find ways to work them into our diet, just because they
are free. Like the pears that we have now. But they're not so there is no
reason I could see to do that.

The good thing about chayote (or choko as we call them in Australia) is
that that they take on the flavour of whatever they are cooked in. I was
raised on them being peeled, sliced and boiled in salty water. When I
cook them as apple substitutes I use a little water and sweetener. We
used to grow them so we always picked them when they were small and
smooth-skinned. I have always found that those sold in stores are large
with a woody skin. get small ones or grow them yourself. They take off
and grow wild along fences if you let them, plenty for yourself and a
neighbour, lol. Never have to do anything with them like water them etc
(unless you live in a drought-prone area I guess).

Actually, Susan turned me on to them after she tried them. I see that Ozgirl
has been using them for a long time too.

Me too but I never think to buy it. I think I only ever bought it once for
a veggie platter.

Hi Cheri,

I was cruising around the Paleo cooking group and
found there Super Bowl recipes.

http://paleospirit.com/2014/paleo-super-bowl-recipes/

Maybe you could modify some of them?
