Varieties of Squash
The above (not so great) pictures were all via Wikipedia. You can find better pictures and more squashes at the following web sites:
The Nibble - Squash Glossary
What's Cooking America - Squash Varieties
What is your favorite type of squash?
The one i definitely do NOT like is chayote (or however you spell it). I had it take over my yard many years back. I tried everything i knew to try to make something edible out of it, but we never could eat anything made from it. I gave up. I see it is a "delicacy" in the groceries now & commanding a high price, but it isn't worth that to me!
Are there suggestions on how to prepare (or what dishes to put) all these squashes? I'm learning to eat more veggies, but i find the recipes a challenge.
