Just in case you want to move on up from sweet potatoes…this just in from a friend. 🙂
You may have seen these green and white beauties at your local pumpkin stand or farmer’s market this fall. They are beautiful to use in your fall decorating. Did you know you can eat them?
Cushaw has always been a part of our family’s Thanksgiving feast. Sometimes we would have it for Thanksgiving and Christmas, depending on how big of a cushaw we found.
I realize that traditionally at holiday time folks have a sweet potato casserole or sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top.
My Dad grew up in Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge’s warm climate is perfect for growing cushaw.
I remember my grandmother making it when we would visit. The recipe for Cushaw comes from the Junior League of Baton Rouge Cook Book.
I wish I had taken a picture of my Mom’s cookbook. It is all tattered, stained and well-used looking.
