Cooking With Fruit
I hope to build this section out with articles about everything from “common” fruits such as apples, pears and bananas to fruits that are more exotic to us in the west: lychee, passion fruit, mango. Some foods are botanically fruits but are treated like vegetables, such as the tomato.
And where do rhubarb and pumpkin fit in? These are the kinds of articles you’ll find here, along with some history. Where do some fruits get their names? Who discovered them? Where were they first cultivated?
And how many varieties of fruits are there? I think there are literally thousands of apple varieties. Some are good for baking, some for cooking and some for eating raw. There’s just so much to know and learn.
