Potatoes – white, purple and sweet
Peppers - red, green, purple, hot and sweet
Winter squash – acorn, butternut, carnival, jester, delicate, red kuri, sweet dumpling, kabocha (see below recipe)
Onion – Cipollini, red, torpedo and yellow
Sweet pie pumpkins
Kabocha custard cups:
This recipe was intended for a pie made with this pumpkin-like kabocha squash, but since I am not particularly adept at the art of making pie crust, I opted for custard in little ramekins. It's a sweet, but not overpowering dessert.
First, the squash itself:
This squash is not easy to cut so I steamed it instead.
2 1/2 cups of cooked kabocha squash
8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. vanilla
Mix the sugar and cream cheese in food processor until smooth. Add in the spices and squash and mix. Then add the two eggs and blend again. Pour the mixture into small ramekins placed on a cookie tray (this recipe filled 10) and then bake at 300 degrees for about 35 minutes or until lightly browned on top and an inserted knife comes out fairly clean. Add a dap of cream on top and sprinkle some chopped walnuts on top of the cream. And voila! Enjoy!
