Mango Chow

It’s summer and mangoes are plentiful.

There are a million recipes that can be made using these tasty fruits, which by the way, are one of my favourites.

I tasted this recipe a few years ago and last year a few friends from Trinidad gave me a recipe.

Pealing a Pineapple

I watched people peel pineapples before and felt confident to give it a go. A sharp knife and a pineapple are pretty much all you need to get the job done.

After the pineapple has been peeled simple remove the seeds by following along the rows or seeds in the pineapple.

For this pineapple, the row weren’t so nice and even so I just followed the pattern of the seeds and I ended up with a piniapple with fact looking rows.

Pomergranates

When I was younger there we loads of pomegranate trees around us. Everytime we went to the supermarket we would pick some and eat. Sometimes we would bite into the bitter skin by mistake in our zeal to devour the juicy seeds!

In my teens, I replaced eating Pemergranates with all kinds of junk food. But in adulthood I returned to those childhood foods that we not only delicious but healthy.

Recently I went by my mother and enjoyed one of her delicious pomegranates. Yum!

Here is a shot of a pomegranate from my mother’s tree.
