Overall impression of chayote? Not bad. Not exactly fantastic though. I’m not disappointed but I don’t think it will be in my usual rotation of veggies. Not just because they’re almost $3 a piece but they don’t exactly add anything exciting or super tasty to bring them back to the table.
But I do think you should try them at least once.
“But why?” you might ask, “what is the point of trying something once if it isn’t memorable?”
Why wouldn’t you though? What is the harm from trying something at all? There is something more to trying new fruits and vegetables than just being able to say, “oh yeah, I’ve had lychee before and loved it” or “stay away from turnips, unless you’re putting cheese on them.” It is rewarding to you and anyone else who is getting to taste new things because of it. It is the challenge of figuring out what to do with the new thing and actually carrying it out.
It’s more than just seeing how something taste, it is a new experience to take on whatever comes.
The past 31 weeks have been a blast and I am a little bitter than we are past the halfway point. I’ve eaten so many leftovers and unfortunately thrown out quite a few others either from taste or not getting to them fast enough. I will always remember each one though that occupies a little place in my heart though.
So I want you all to go out there and just try something new. It doesn’t have to be seeing the newest movie or buying the newest piece of technology. If you’ve never cooked a one pot meal, do that. If you’ve never planted any kind of vegetation or flowers go find something in season. If you have never pet a pug, go do that (this is actually my deepest secret, I have always wanted to pet one.)
So get out there! Thanks for reading and come back for more tomorrow!
