What are the pros? Will not cook to mush!
What are the cons? Not suitable for pumkin pie!
In the fall of 2014 my mother visited from Germany. One evening she remembered her grandmother and mother growing a squash that made the best 'sweat and sour pickled pumpkin', a German favorite! All her life she searched for this 'pickling pumpkin'. Funny thing is that I love this German favorite. It is not available in US stores. Together we skewered the internet for pictures of squash and pumpkins to find it. We came to this website and she said that this might be it! To make a long story short, I grew two of these seeds this year. The yield was good. I pickled them this fall according to an old German recipe that she remembered as well. I just added fresh ginger to it for a little more spice. It came out absolutely perfect and so yummy. Golden yellow and with a bite like a half cooked raw potato. Exactly like it should be! Forget animal feed, you just need to know what to do with it! I did send her two jars of it for Christmas. It is the perfect squash for pickling!
