Spaghetti squash

Spaghetti squash - Spaghetti squash is an unusual squash in that the flesh when baked comes apart in strands that look like spaghetti noodles. It is very nutrient rich and is low in carbohydrates, cholesterol, and fat. "It is also a good source of Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber and Vitamin C." Read More on it's nutritional content.

This squash is thus a wonderful alternative to real spaghetti noodles or just as a side dish. The best way to eat it is to cut it in half, scoop out the pulp and seeds, sprinkle with oil or butter or margarine, then salt and pepper and maybe garlic powder, then bake at 350F for 45 minutes. Scrape the flesh with a fork horizontally to get the noodle-like strands. Serve these as is or with spaghetti sauce.

Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.
