Snake Squash

Have you ever eaten anything longer than your arm?

I haven't -- but plan to. I just got a "Snake Squash" grown in Louisiana. Italians love it and call it "Cucuzza Squash." After peeling, you cook it like any other vegetable. Report on that to follow.

I knew you wouldn't believe me about its size so here's photographic evidence. With no editing!


  1. My grandfather grew them in his garden in Queens. I was often tempted to use one as a baseball bat. I doubt the results would have been a home run in anyone's book

  2. Do noodles count? I've eaten some very long noodles!

    That is a hilarious squash!

    Thank you so much for the book you sent me! I love it! I am so excited to read it - thank you thank you! I hear you sent Elaine one as well. You are such a sweetheart, Ally.

    1. As I told Elaine, the book is perfect for you two.

  3. Wow, I've never eaten anything like that but I would love to give it a try :D

  4. Hilarious, Ally, and no, I don't think I ever did eat anything longer than my arm ;-) xxx
