Go figure.

Braised Chayote (choko) with minced meat.
'Tis the Philippines where chokoes are given the respect they deserve. Also the Cajuns & Creoles of Lousiaina+ celebrate the vegetable in their cuisine. There they call it 'Mirliton'.
Here for this dish at home, the squash was the rare white variety which has a flavour less rawish than its green cousin.

I love avocado pears, they take on the flavour of whatever you are cooking.  The small young ones can be cooked whole without peeling or seeding.  Great for chutney and relish and curry, we have to buy ours now.  You used to be able to buy them at a roadside stall at a good price.

Let our attitude to these comestibles be one of friendship and solidarity. Banish disdain from our hearts!
