To Market, To Market...

...to buy a fat pumpkin?

Or rather, potiron, a kind of French pumpkin. What Americans think of as pumpkin is known as citrouille, a word that is virtually unpronounceable to anyone who is not born French (though I have given it my best shot on several occasions).

They were selling this particular potiron by the slice, or tranche. I cut up my slice into cubes and made a friend's macrobiotic recipe, Aduki Bean-Squash Combo. Totally un-French of course, but still deliciously sweet and satisfying!
