Magic Gourds

Beautiful, quirky little vegetables (or some would say, fruits), full of character! I have become a little addicted to buying them. They come in all different shapes, sizes and colours, a bit like us humans really. Not sure if they are widely available in the UK as I am buying them in the local market place in Zagreb where they are ubiquitous (but not for much longer). Allegedly, they just air dry and keep for ever and ever. Hence they have been termed Magic Gourds by a friend of mine (thanks Romola). It remains to be seen whether they do indeed last for ever and ever but they look mighty pretty in the meantime.
