  • Cooking In Season: Asparagus, Plus Tips to Prepare

    Do you know the trick to break off the butt end of an asparagus spear?  An easy way to do this so it snaps easily, is to grab several spears at once - grasping the stems in one hand and the bottoms in the other. Bend the asparagus spears. An asparagus will naturally break (more or less) where the woody part ends and tender part begins.

    The woody bases can be saved and used for soup stock. Wash the stalks thoroughly and carefully to remove any sand from under the scales.

    To eat a fresh ripe mango, is to enter a world where eating just one in a sitting might not be enough. In Jamaica, some people eat the skin of the mango, especially if freshly picked from a tree.

    Many can enjoy fresh mangoes as a tasty treat or prepare them in various dishes. To determine a ripe mango, gently press it with your finger. If it leaves a dent, it is ripe and ready to eat. Here are some ways you can include mangoes in your diet.

  • Cooking In Season: Rhubarb

    Common uses for rhubarb begin with poaching in light syrup or stewing with other fruits. We typically eat rhubarb in dessert dishes and think of it more as a fruit, but, rhubarb is actually a vegetable. Rhubarb’s long, red stalks require some serious sweetness to balance their tartness, so dessert is a logical option.

    Rhubarb plants unfurl in spring from a bulbous, shiny red crown, and leaves unfold almost magically into giant ribbed shields on tart-sweet stalks.
