In engaged on at this time’s Tasty Tuesday put up I’ve realized that the Cushaw is a local heirloom squash selection to Tennessee, Louisiana and Mississippi. You already know I like heirloom. Does not it make you are feeling fancy?

So final yr on our annual journey to Carver’s Apple Orchard the sweetest previous Appalachian woman instructed my hubs that cushaw had been higher than pumpkin in pies and that was all it took. We had a cushaw in our automobile earlier than I spotted it. I used to be not excited in any respect. Nicely, possibly slightly…however not a lot. I imply if you see these squash you suppose, “Oh, have a look at that bizarre gourd. That may look fairly on my porch.” Little did I do know folks cooked this stuff. However, like most seemingly loopy issues my husband suggests, I did take pleasure in this new journey. And cushaw pies are fairly good!

To arrange my cushaw I reduce the squash in half, cleaned the squash out such as you would a pumpkin, peeled and minimize into 1 inch cubes. I then positioned the cubed cushaw on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer and roasted for forty-60min (or till tender). Let the cushaw cool no less than 10 min earlier than putting it right into a meals processor (simply put about one cup of cushaw within the meals processor at a time to mix evenly). Upon getting 2 cups of pureed squash you might be all set!


Mix the primary seven components in a big mixing bowl then add the eggs and vanilla and wisk collectively. Add the heavy cream final and stir to mix. Pour equal quantities into unbaked pastry crust and bake for 50-60 minutes in a 375 diploma oven on the bottom rack. I want the pie at room temperature however solely as a result of the consistency is extra like a typical pumpkin pie. Consuming it heat out of the oven is yummy too. And I am going to share the right whipped topping to serve alongside this slice of Fall subsequent week!
