For our first botanical assignment, we were to go out and buy an unusual produce item (fruit, vegetable or herb) that we have either never seen before or never eaten!  I stopped by Tan A asian market on Broad Street and picked up a Choyote Squash, Bitter Melon and an Eddo (which is just another name for Taro Root)

In class, we took turns sharing our unusual produce and I taste-tested them all under the mantra that anything is edible if you eat it. Later I found out that eating uncooked taro root is poisonous but I only had a little so everything is fine.  The only thing I didnt eat was the bitter melon (until later when I tried and failed many times to make it taste less disgusting by first boiling it, then adding black beans, turkey sausage and olive oil…then curry, worcestershire sauce, Chinese 5 spice, lots of salt and pepper and onion. Still bitter)
Once we all decided on our products (mine will be Choyote Squash) we started making a visual note taking page!
More on that next!
