Plant of the Day
Sunday 31 October 2021
A selection of squashes and pumpkins seem suitable for today. Most are cultivars of Cucurbita pepo and Cucurbita maxima but there is the elongated Cucurbita moschata 鈥楾romboncino鈥 (zucchetta).

Winter squash early harvest is going well! We have delicata (stripey) Pie Pumpkins, butternut, and a spaghetti squash! I was also supposed to have some warty red pumpkin, but those seeds seem to be growing more spaghetti squash instead lol. Putting the squash and melons up on bricks was a good choice: vines didn't tear as they grew and it kept them away from the slugs!

The Spectacle of Nature: Hieronymus Bock鈥檚 Kre眉tterbuch
Today we return to one of the 鈥淭hree Founders of Botany鈥 Hieronymus Bock and his Kre眉tterbuch.聽 Hieronymus Bock was born in Heidelsheim or Heidersbach, Germany in 1498 and died in 1554. As mentioned in our previous post, the first edition of Kre眉tterbuch was unillustrated and printed in Strasburg by Wendel Rihel in 1539. Illustrated versions started appearing in 1546 and contained many woodcuts based on the illustrations found in the herbals of Otto Brunfels and Leonhart Fuchs, along with roughly 100 original illustrations by the Strasbourg artist David Kandel who is also responsible for the portrait of Bock.
This past summer I examined and took photographs of UW-Madison鈥檚 hand-colored edition of聽Kre眉tterbuch from 1577 printed by Josias Rihel in Strasburg. What is extra exciting about UW-Madison's copy is that it contains pressed plant specimens. It鈥檚 hard to say if they are as old as the book, but it is exciting to think about! This edition also incorporates Bock鈥檚 Teutsche Speiszkammer, a gallery of food and drink preparations. One illustration included here depicts a man taking eggs from a chicken coop and a woman carrying a duck away, presumably to eat.
Like other herbals from the period, Hieronymus Bock's Kre眉tterbuch contains illustrations of animals in addition to those of plants. I especially love the mythical creatures including a unicorn and the illustration of rooster chasing a demon (or devil) with faces on its kneecaps. 聽

Joey鈥檚 Super Epic Poggers Butternut Squash Soup (ft. dubious ingredients and haphazard measurements)
Ingredients:
1 Butternut Squash - cubed
3 large Sweet Potatoes - cubed
3 large White Onions - eighthed
7-10 halved Garlic Cloves (I know that sounds like a lot but please trust me)
4-5 medium Carrots - sliced
3tsp of minced or sliced Ginger
Enough chicken or vegetable stock/broth to fill the pot above the veg
60ml Double Cream
1tbsp Butter (optional)
1/3 tsp Paprika
1/3 tsp Turmeric
Salt and Pepper to taste
Coriander (Cilantro) Sprigs
1. First up, you鈥檙e gonna wanna cut up all them vegetables. Have that done first. The squash took my entire sharting life but trust me it鈥檒l be worth it. Put the pan on the stove but don鈥檛 light it yet, and wack all the vegetables in there.

2. Next up, you gotta boil up that broth. I prefer the flavour chicken stock gives, but if you wanna make this veggie/vegan friendly, just use vegetable stock.
Fill up the pot above the vegetables and turn the heat on, high. Make sure you鈥檙e putting the lid on or the broth is gonna evaporate into the Heavyside Layer.
Let that mf bubble and boil away for 15-20 minutes OR until you can stab a fork really smoothly through the largest chunks of squash.

3. Okay, this part is fun but you gotta make sure you don鈥檛 scold yourself so be careful when you use the hand blender. If you鈥檙e not sure how to use one, google is your friend.
So!! If you鈥檙e veg is all nice and soft, turn the heat off the stove and move the pot carefully to a stable, flat surface. Then, take out your hand blender and blitz the ever loving cock out of it until it鈥檚 smooth and consistent all the way through.

4. Here, we add in the cream, the turmeric, paprika, butter if you want it, and if you wanna be brave and do it right away, the salt and pepper. If it鈥檚 too runny, just let it boil away some more without the lid on until it reduces down. Now you鈥檙e good to go!
Get that shit bowled up, add a lil drizzle of cream to make it look pretty, and smack those coriander sprigs on there so it looks proper fuckin鈥 fancy-like.

And there u go! I鈥檝e made this a couple of times now and while no one in my house likes butternut squash, I鈥檓 fuckin鈥 ride or die for this recipe.
If you want somethin鈥 to go with it, tiger bread absolutely fucks with this.
