Meet The Veggies. Or Maybe It's A Fruit?

Toddler was very excited at the arrival of our new veg box the other day.

She's a big fan of Mr Bloom's Nursery (kids' TV show about a chap on an allotment with a talking aubergine called Sebastian) so was delighted to see all sorts of veggies coming to the door.

The bright green fronds of Joan (the fennel) were quickly employed as tickling weapons. Joan went into last night's lasagne. Yum!

But the big question is... What on earth is this thing pictured here?

Is it a gourd? A melon perhaps? Some sort of marrow?

If we cut into it we're committed to doing something with it.

Answers on a postcard please.

  1. A squash?
    In which case it is nice roasted (as chunks) with a bit of olive oil and salt.
