Cook with a new ingredient.
I cooked with Chayote.
It's a bit like a really hard cucumber.
It tastes nasty before it's cooked.
Take my word for it.
We made Costa Rican Beef and Chayote.
In the Cookbook?
Ummmmm, I would say "yes."
It was good.
I liked most of the ingredients.
Did the chayote "make" the meal?
Not so much.
You can substitute zucchini for the chayote, and since I seem to usually have zucchini on my shopping list, I might just do that next time.
