Fall fruit and vegetables, particularly squash, is in evidence everywhere. Make sure that you swing by the grocers, such as Iovine Bros. and Fair Food Farmstand, and revel in the abundance of color and textures.
Many of the merchants have seized this opportunity to work with squash in its various guises - acorn, butternut and turban squash to name but a few varieties...
Much ink has been spilled debating the relative merits of squash versus pumpkin.
We've read numerous articles attempting to define what constitutes a squash and what is a pumpkin.
Our favorite sweeping definition to date:
- You carve a pumpkin
- You cook a squash (it's invariably sweeter and not as hard)
- You look at a gourd i.e. it's ornamental and not good for eating.
|Can you sort out the gourds from the squash - tricky eh?|
