Im so glad that i had completed ABC Round 4, and now as the Round 5 begins, i have enough APPETITE to complete this round.To begin the Round 5, thankfully, the new badge came early.

i linked my Round 5, letter A in the comment box, Mr. Linky is not available that time thus, let me share to you my Letter A entry on this link.

for my entry this week.

Here in the Philippines, we call Bottle Gourd as "upo" (ooh-poh). we saute it w/ onions, garlic, tomato and pork. but others, use canned sardines to cut some budget and time. add a cup of water to until tender add
tiny cubes of bottle gourd and simmer until done. season w/ salt and pepper. other also add anato seeds into hot water soak for 15min, discard the seed before adding this up to the pork.

Have a Great Wednesday to all of us :D

Thank you for teaching me about this vegetable - It is unknown to me, but maybe that says most about my level of vegetable knowledge? :-)

I'd never heard of this vegetable but am always keen to learn more. Is it a spicy hot vegie or mild?

I've never heard of the bottle gourd but I'd sure like to sample it. It looks wonderful.

Interesting vegetable and the recipe sounds quite appetizing. Especially with pork.

Jay said...

Mmm, a new sardine recipe! They are one of the few fish I can eat! But we don't have bottle gourds here, but I think we could probably use courgettes (zucchini).

Tasty looking!
All the gourds I grow are non-edible...nice to know there are some that are.
