Our veggie patch has come good! We’ve grown our own to give you even more flavour.
The big one Tom is holding is an ancient variety called ‘Ute Indian’. It’s an extremely rare squash, with a sophisticated green-grey outside and inside there is a dense bright-yellow flesh. The squash, if eaten raw, tastes like melon! When cooked the flavour is exquisite. Originally, this squash was grown by the Ute people who lived in Colorado from AD 1300 to 1881. We acquired some seed from The Real Seed Catalogue (http://www.realseeds.co.uk/) and have grown some absolute whoppers here on our farm. The biggest one weighs in at over 10kg! We are so delighted to have these squash in the kitchen this week and have decided to use them to make our Spiced Roasted Aubergine and Squash Wraps for the Nourish food festival in Bovey Tracey on Saturday. So if you would like to sample this unique squash, come and see Tom, Jenny & Daisy on the Home Farm Café stand on Saturday.
