I’ve recently come to grips with the fact that I am not a gardener. Instead of raising plants from seed, I like to herd the wild ones around me.
Unfortunately I put myself through gardening catalog temptations on a semi regular basis. “It’s for the tools” I tell myself.
Lo and behold, my new Lee Valley Garden Tools catalog features a wonderful and creepy set of vegetable molds, called Vegiforms that one can press growing squashes into. Offered are molds to make complete heads (for round -ish squash), faces (for cylindrical shaped ones), corn on the cob molds (don’t ask me…), and heart shaped molds.
The heart tube molds would yield cucumbers that would give rise to heart shaped pickle slices.
I wonder what other fruits or vegetables could successfully be molded like this?
