Earlier this week, I posted about a dish that Jason made called "Chutzpah". Well, I received an email from his mom after posting that said "No, not Chutzpah, it's Hutspot!". This is a dish that Jason remembered from being a child, and by the time he told me (and I wrote it down) I heard Chutzpah.
"Hutspot" is a traditional Dutch dish -- according to Jason's mom, "The Dutch word is 'hutspot' meaning
'cottage pot.' The English version of it is 'hotchpotch' or 'hodgepodge.'" Hutspot is usually served as mashed vegetables (potatoes, carrot, kale, cabbage, escarole, onion, or some mixture - you might remember that we used pumpkin too) along with a piece of meat such as smoked sausage, corned beef, or boiled beef).
So now we all know that it's hutspot -- not chutzpah and I will change the earlier post to set the record straight.
But I think in our household we will still call it chutzpah!
