Blessings, Darlings!

I had a new experience today - I took a bite out of a dish and had to throw it out.  And I'm NOT one to waste food!

The culprit was a Spaghetti Squash.  It turned out to be INCREDIBLY BITTER - far too bitter to eat.  And I'm no Supertaster when it comes to bitter (my husband is, and what a pain THAT is to live with).  This has NEVER happened to me before.  NEVER has a trusted food been inedible.

Has anyone else run into this with spaghetti squash?  I've even dumped the seeds instead of seasoning and baking them!  If this has happened to y'all before, how do you avoid bitter ones in the future?

Frondly, but grossed-out, Fern


  1. I've had it happen with cukes. Not enough water?

  2. I nuked it, like I do all squashes - never needed water before.
