Random Food Post...

So this is a random post (and probably not the most exciting :) but I wanted to introduce you to one of my favorite fruits! I never saw these in America, but maybe they have them in South Florida or South Texas or something... Anyway, here it's called Chikoo or Chiku... I think the name it might go by in America is "Sapodilla"... Anyway it's REALLY good! Totally my kind of fruit! It tastes like brown sugar! YUM!! They have these big black seeds in them too - pretty cool :) On another food note... I made Applesauce for the first time this week... I didn't realize how easy it was to make and MAN! it's good! (Even if I do say so my self :))... I can't believe how many things I've learned to make from scratch since living here :) I crack up when I look at websites and they have recipies you can make "from scratch" and the ingredients include things like a can of frozen biscuits, a can of beans, etc - haha!

I've never had the chickoo (however you spell it) but I've seen the chickoo gelato. Brown sugar fruit definitely sounds right up my alley though!
And way to go on the applesauce! I need to get your recipe.

I am so impressed! I'll give you a little homemade baby food tip I heard once- puree some veggies or fruits and put them in ice cube trays-freeze them, then when you need them, you simply pop it out, thaw for a little bit and you have a perfect serving size- Never tried it, but I've heard it's a super easy way to keep organized! Maybe it will help you!
