Default Carnival Squash


This is the acorn type squash that I grow. It is really sweet and not
stringy. Each squash serves one or two people. The squash stores
well after picking. I recomend you try this one. Suitable for
container growing.

Since I was a kid, I never liked squash. I've even tried eggplant. I don't think it was eggplant parmesan (Melanzana alla Parmigiana) or not.

You tried eggplant? Did you tell anybody?

Not even zucchini? My grandmother makes the best zucchini bread. I
like to fry strips of it, sometimes eat it with pasta sauce. It's great
in a stir fry also. I planted a few this year, blooming now. I can't
wait for the fruit!

Eggplant is kind of a slimy, squishy, vegetable so a lot of folks dislike it. It's also hard to cook.

I like to cook eggplant. I get it right about half the time. My wife and I really like Chinese style spicy garlic eggplant and Korean eggplant is probably the most umami rich dish I've ever had. My guess is that it's a dish that's hard for most people to swallow. It's dishes like that that are the most sublime.

Not liking eggplant is new to me. If a lot of folks disliked it, I'd
have noticed. But maybe in the US.

I love eggplant and bitter melon, but I can understand why people can't stomach the stuff.

I find bitter melon much harder to appreciate than eggplant.

That's understandable. Bitter melon literally tastes like aspirin. The harder question is why do people love the stuff? I don't know. The Chinese believe that it has medicinal properties. It does seem to have a positive effect on blood glucose levels.

Eggplant isn't squash. It's more closely related to tomatoes and potatoes.

Maybe they can put it in pill form. People already take garlic,
ginger, turmeric etc pills. Why not bitter melon.

That makes as much sense as taking a steak in pill form. I don't eat bitter melon because it has an effect on blood glucose levels - that's not real important to me.

You and a couple of Chinese (roughly one billion) may be the only ones
who like the flavour, but if it's good for people's health -real or
perceived- a pill would make sense for the rest of the world's
population. And lo and behold, it already exists.
