I've had two of these laying around, thanks to Bountiful Baskets. (Otherwise, I'm sure I'd still be ignorant about them!) First, I had to figure out what they were, and then I had to figure out what to do with them. They are Chayote (chah-YO-tay) squash, sometimes called "Mexican zucchini." I've also seen them humorously labeled as "Zucchini butt." Since my foiled zucchini bread making a few days ago (see this post) I finally decided to substitute the chayote for zucchini and make the Brown Sugar Zucchini Bread from Everyday Food Storage. I'm glad I did! It turned out delicious, and you would never know the difference.
