LATIN: Chayote Squash information, recipe and changes to recipe and VIDEO

When doing research for this post I looked up photos of chayote.  I had no idea there were so many types.  I had only seen the light green one which is first photo on this page.

There is even a handbag named a chayote. Photo below

First grown by the Aztecs the chayote has a long history. Here is a link for ideas of what to do with the chayote:

I made this recipe and it needs to be changed. See changes below.

Cooking method needs to be changed. 1 TBSP olive oil is not enough. The amount of time needs to be longer and I put a lid over the squash to steam it to make it softer. Stayed hard too long. I cut the salt and sugar by half. 1/2 inch slices too big and takes too long to cook. 1/3 inch slices better. Good taste.
