Can you eat gourds? We bought some of those small, interestingly colored and shaped gourds at the farmers market to decorate our table. Ds wants to taste them. Can you somehow cook them and eat them?

The gourd is a dried fruit/veggie and I doubt it is edible at that point.
Your could probably use it as a cup/bowl to give your DS porridge or anything to drink.

That's a really cool idea. A grower was selling beautiful gourds at the market this Sunday, but I had no idea what to do with them and I still don't know how to dry them.

I blog traditional foods and Weston A Price at Nourished Kitchen. See my healthy recipes.
