My daughter added food coloring to this because she said the color looked very unappetizing.

It has its own taste, kinda hard to describe, very sweet, texture was loose, not as dense as pumpkin.
I really liked it.
The rest of the family could care less, I think it was because they knew I grew it and didn't buy it lol.

I know the feeling. My wife complained about the broccoli I grew- said it didn't taste as good as the broccoli she buys at the market. I then stashed away some broccoli crowns in the fridge for around 10 days, brought them out and after tasting them, my wife proclaimed "that's the way good broccoli should taste".
