Chayote Squash Side Dish

Chayote Squash. My gardening guru, Ray, loves this plant because you can eat the shoots and the fruit and the pit, and it grows like crazy.

Root Crop Storage Bin- root veggies like carrots and beets will stay fresh all winter and even grow sweeter in this storage bin. Just fill with layers of damp sand or sawdust, alternating with layers of carrots or beets, and put in a cool, dark place. Potatoes, turnips and squash can go right in the bin without sand.

Chayote- TRIED IT! While the chayote is technically a fruit, it is often cooked like a vegetable. It is compared to a potato or a cucumber and can be boiled, fried, baked, or pickled. The plant is native to Mexico and Central America, but locals in Australia and New Zealand grow chayotes in their gardens.

Mirliton in Louisiana; Christophene in the French Caribbean; Custard marrow or vegetable pear in England or Chayote. I believe it is a type of squash (doesn't taste a thing like squash). We cook them, scoop them out, season and add peeled boiled shrimp. We always serve this dish at Christmas.
