    Spaghetti Squash in the UK

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone know if (and where) you can get spaghetti squash in the UK?

    I've been looking but have never found it.

    Me, too ... likewise, never found it. I am intrigued.

    Meanwhile, a cheap julienne slicer from t'internet and I'm making all the vegetable spaghetti I want. Carrot, courgette, cucumber, anything that peels.

    Sounds cool. I'm always tempted by those spiralisers but they're pretty pricey

    I was thinking about this the other day. I've made spaghetti with butternut squash before, and it didn't turn out too bad

    Can't find in Denmark as well, but I just use zucchini slices sauteed in some coconut oil instead. Did try the spaghetti squash while I was living in the US and I actually like the zucchini better, it's less sweet.

    Im in the UK and Ive been growing my own for years! I also get some from my local market, but its the wrong season at the moment.
    I buy seeds from Sutton seeds or The Organic Gardening Catalogue They grow just as easily as Marrow or Courgettes, (Zucinni to Americans. Sow in April / May and ready in August / September.
    I'm not a complete idiot! There's parts missing!!

    We're moving soon - when we do, I'll be rigging up some planters. This family of foods is one I'll grow. I'm sure I've read that squash vines dug back in are really good for the soil.

    Have a look online for Gefu spiraliser spiral food slicer. I bought one, I think I paid 20 including postage, and love it. You can make spaghetti out of courgettes, carrots, cucumber, squash. I still do a lot of raw foods, and a bowl of mixed raw spaghetti is wonderful with dressing, or even with a good meat sauce poured over. I'm always amazed by the way the taste of the veggies changes with the way you slice them; spiralising is no different, I really recommend it. The gadget is stainless steel mostly, and I suspect will last very many years. Shahzadi

    Thanks Rattybag - I've got a decent sized roof terrace with some planters so may just give growing my own a go!

    Thanks for that also Gefu - I flirted with a mostly raw diet last summer before I went primal and still love my raw veggies. I'll definitely have a look for it.

    In the meantime think I'll try using my mandolin to finely slice some courgettes - if I can be bothered I may even cut them into julienne.
