I saw this Potato at the grocery store and thought I would try it. It was a variety of Sweet potato that I had not seen nor bought before. It has a thin, light colored skin and flesh (more like a baked potato). It’s not sweet (just so so subtly can you pick up a slight hint of it) and after cooked, it has a dry texture, and seems to stay a bit hard no matter how long you bake it. It’s very interesting. I put Butter and Salt & Pepper on it like a regular Baked Potato but I guess I am used to the creaminess of a Baked Potato. I liked this Potato because it was different and fun to try, but I don’t know that I would seek it out.

If you look up Carnival Squash I’m not sure that you’ll find that name anywhere but someone once told me that that was the name of it so it has just stuck with me. After trying many different varieties of Squash I found that this one was my very favorite! It has a sweeter taste and gets really creamy after cooked. I just like it with Butter and Kosher Salt and Cracked Pepper. Pick one up next time you go to the store and let me know what you think!

Have you ever used Fresh Ginger before? This is what it looks like if you’ve never seen it. You can find it fresh like this in every grocery store.
This is what it looks like inside. You may have heard of Ginger Snaps, Ginger Bread, Ginger Beer, Candied Ginger. Ginger can be used in both Sweet and Savory dishes but dried ground Ginger is not a substitute for fresh Ginger as they are very different in flavor and texture.

You can grate, thinly slice or chop Fresh Ginger. I peeled it with a vegetable peeler first.
Finely chopped Ginger, so fragrant and delicious.
