Recipe Notes

Works great in recipes calling for applesauce. If you are using it in place of unsweetened applesauce and don't need an apple flavor, simply leave out the flavorings and sweetener, chayote then becomes a silent partner in the recipe as it has a very delicate flavor that will not overpower your recipes.
