I have been fortunate this past week with veggie gifts from friends gardens. These two vegetables are quite unusal to most and I have never used before so I was excited to play with them both in the kitchen.
The choko is a bit astringent to feel but not when you eat it for some reason.
I've added lime & salt straight away to totally remove it though. It needs to be peeled wether you are going to cook it or not as it is quite firm. Also remove the pip with a small paring knife.
