Today my brother brought me a piece of gourd.

They had gone to see my SILs brother and he gave them a big piece of gourd. I suppose they did not know what to do with all of it so he brought me some. There´s not much love lost between my SIL and me so I don´t think it was an act of love. Maybe she did not have enough space in her freezer. I don´t know. The thing is, they live 2 houses away from me and they haven´t come to see me in 2 years. I politely accepted the gourd and will decide how to keep it. Any ideas?

I'm assuming it is an edible hard squash and not a decorative gourd? You could peel it, cube it, toss it with oil and seasonings, and then roast it in the oven. You could also make it into soup.

I like to make a soup with a gourd. If it is not watery I also make gnocchi.

It´s not watery. Do you use it instead of potatoes?

You can cut and peel the skin and chop the inside part into small pieces and fry along with onions and tomatoes

I don't know what kind or shape it is; but you could stuff it with a sausage stuffing/dressing and bake it in the oven.

We have many kinds of squash we eat, but I never knew gourds are edible.

@marguicha We grow decorative gourds in Michigan. Squash, they are the best!

Not sure what that is. How would you normally keep such a thing?

We use them as decoration on the porch. Never eaten one.
