Lara passed me the BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient) torch! I’m sure you all know what’s coming. This week’s pick:
Kabocha is a Japanese pumpkin. It’s rich in beta carotene, with iron, vitamin C, potassium, and smaller traces of calcium, folic acid, and minute amounts of B vitamins. You can find it in the produce section of a market – probably with the other squash or root veggies like potatoes. If you can’t find it in your normal grocery, try looking at an Asian market, or any other small market. They’re really abundant here in California but I’m sure you can find them anywhere. My mom and grandmother get them in New Jersey and I’ve seen bloggers across the country find them as well.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with. The rules:
- Make a recipe that uses kabocha (it can be original but it doesn’t have to be) BEFORE SUNDAY NIGHT.
- Post about it and link back here, or if you don’t have a blog, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your recipe – pictures are great but optional.
- Comment on this post letting me know that you entered.
Good luck! If you want to know more about kabocha, check out this post.
