What To Do With Late Season Monster Squash

There is perhaps nothing more tender and delicate than a zucchini. Except, perhaps, when the zucchini in question is a late season, enormous, oblong monster akin to something out of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Anyone who’s ever grown zucchini knows that there comes a point, if your crop is successful, when you turn your head for a second and look back to find one of these mammoths pulling on the vine, half-hidden (creepily) between gigantic green leaves.

A Seed Saving Success: Long Island Cheese Pumpkin

In the High Summer issue of Edible East End, Erica-Lynn Huberty told the story of the Salt of the Earth Seed Company, which has embarked on a massive seed-saving project to protect our food supply while saving the best seeds to grow the best produce for our region. One success story, predating Salt of the Earth, is the Long Island cheese pumpkin, which also got a mention in our Fall 2005 issue.
