Letter H foods

Jenny Matlock The letter of the day is the letter H so I thought I would share with you a few foods that start with that special letter

habenero peppers which are spicy much to spicy for my taste buds but many individuals like them just the same

The hairy mellon which to me resembles a cucumber as described by food reference is a winter melon that is 6 to 10 inches long with green skin and fine hairlike fuzz that disappears when the fruit matures. Their shape varies from cylindrical to dumbbell like. It's mild subtle flavor is described as somewhat like a cucumber or summer squash. They are originally from southern China and have been cultivated there since antiquity

This next food shop has a category of its own or should I say I night of its own. Halloween Candy, how many of you snuck a piece or two of what was gathered?

  1. Wow! What a list, I've never given it much thought to how many foods start with 'H'.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hairy melons? That's a new one on me! Most of the rest I do know. especially the Halloween stuff:)

  3. That is quite a list! When I first saw the candy I couldn't figure out how they fit the letter "H" until you said Halloween candy.

  4. I can do without the Halloween least this week. And as for the hairy melon...ugh, I tried to cook it once, it was a complete bitter failure. :(

  5. Wow that is a klong list. Never knew there were so many. Great H word

  6. That's one long list of H food! My favorite is the Halloween candy!

  7. What a neat list!

    I've always wanted to try that melon but I'm a little afraid of its appearance.

    Halloween candy, though...I am all kinds of brave in devouring that!

    Hooray for this wonderfully fun link for Alphabe-Thursday's letter "H".

    I enjoyed my visit here today.
