What Kind of Squash are They?
Embarrassed, I had to confess to the checkout person of my local market that I had no idea what kind of winter squash I was buying. I just thought they would make a lovely painting. A quick cruise of the web informed me that I'd purchased red kuri, white acorn, and kabocha squash. Kuri, kabocha - though these names sound quite foreign and exotic, all the members of this sprawling botanical family originate in America.
This painting appears in the 2005 Food For Thought calendar.
