I saw something which I haven't seen since I was a little girl..... "googootza" or cucuzza squash!
Our local fruit stand market had three left and I picked up one of these and bought it. I still don't know what I will make with this but I have been looking up recipes on the internet today.
This particular squash weighed 6 pounds. To be honest, I don't even remember how these tasted.
My parents used to grow this on their chain-link hurricane fence since it was strong enough to support the weight of this plant, especially when it started to produce squash.
We sliced it up yesterday and I only removed the seeds from about 4 of the slices. There are a LOT of seeds in these squash! For some reason, they remind me of teeth. LOL.
I don't remember how my mother would prepare her squash so I need to ask her soon. Casseroles maybe??
If anyone has any suggestions on how to cook this and growing tips for this squash, please leave me a comment below.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog! :)
