Buy a choko shove it down the back of the vegie cupboard till it sprouts, then plant it in a sunny spot with the sprouting bit out of the soil. Make sure there is somewhere for the vine to climb - along a fence, up a tree or along the bushes. Pick the chokoes when they are tiny and before the tough seed inside has formed.
Take a handful of tiny chokoes; peel them but don't bother to cut out the centre as it won't be tough yet. Steam or boil them for ten minutes, then dab with butter or toss in light sour cream with lots of chopped parsley or chervil.
Alternatively, sauté with garlic in olive oil; chopped red onion can also be added or a few small chips of fresh ginger. Tiny chokoes stir fried with ginger are very good indeed.
