Crab Salad ‘California Bowl’

I had a craving for California rolls the other day.  In hopes of making my own, I realized that avocados are rare, expensive, and must be bought in bulk in Korea.  Making your own sushi can be fun, but it is time consuming and easy to mess-up, I tried!  So, I decided to make a California bowl, a deconstructed California roll using classic crab salad, cucumber, and seasoned seaweed flakes.  I didn’t really miss the avocado, but you can add it if you find it.  You can use the crab salad on crackers too for a delicious snack.

‘Canned’ Pumpkin

Canned pumpkin is vital during the holidays back in the U.S.A.  It is hard to find and expensive in Korea.  So, I decided to make my own using pre-peeled and sliced pumpkin/squash from Costco.  One 900 g container will yield about 3 (15 oz) cans of mashed pumpkin ready for use in my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread or anything calling for canned pumpkin!

‘Canned Pumpkin’

Servings: yields about 4 1/2 cups of mashed pumpkin


- 1 (900 g) container of pre-peeled and sliced pumpkin or orange squash
