Lord, I cook A LOT, and I feel like I know a lot of random ingredients, but in my continued hunt for Cajun recipes, I came across a few calling for Mirlitons…
So it’s off to google I go. Love google!!
“Mirlitons (pronounced MEL-lee-tawns or MER-lee-tawns) are a type of squash found growing wild and in backyards throughout southern Louisiana. They’re pale green, with a delicate flavor and a large, dense central seed. In other parts of the country, they’re called chayote squash.”
And there you have it. A big green fist, I mean SQUASH.
Now back to recipe hunting….
