Wild and wonderful fruits.

Posted on 15 February, 2011 at 19:33
G'day! Hope you have all had a wonderful week.
There has been such an amazing response to my website and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you lovely people out there who have helped me out by spreading the word about Rosalee Station's imminent arrival. I have really enjoyed reading all the inspiring emails from people who are excited to get their hands on a copy of Rosalee Station in May.....good on yas!
Monstera deliciosa 2In the tropics I am lucky enough to be able to grow an abundant amount of fruit and vegetables in the gardens which surround our corrugated iron house. I wanted to share one very unique and special fruit with you this week, the mighty Monstera Deliciosa...sounds like something out of a horror film, doesn't it? But trust me, it is divine!
Monstera deliciosaThe fruit may be ripened by cutting it when the first scales begin to lift up and it begins to exude a pungent odour (gotta look past this one!)  I then wrap it in a paper bag and set aside until the scales begin popping off. The scales are then brushed off or fall away to reveal the edible flesh underneath. The flesh, which is similar in texture to a pineapple, can then be cut away from the core and devoured. It has a fruity taste similar to jackfruit and pineapple. Absolutely addictive once you start eating it but the thing is, you have to be patient, and try hard not scoff the whole thing in a day. If you do, you will have little tiny prickles in your tongue for a week. The prickles only disappear once the fruit drops off the core…someone should invent a chocolate like this! or maybe not!
So for now, I must learn patience, and wait until the delicious fruit decides it is ready to be eaten.
       Thought for this week is from the funny man himself, Billy Connolly.
"Who discovered we could get milk from cows to drink ourselves; and what did he think he was doing at the time?"
Keep smiling and dreaming
Mandy ;-)
