Burro Bananas 500g

Burro banana are unique in their appearance and their taste. When ripened their taste ranges from being a tangy lemony flavour to tasting like a sweet and juicy apple. In many tropical place the burro is known as an apple banana.

It may interest some to know that regular bananas have a PH level of 5 (making them acidic) whilst burro bananas record a PH level of between 7 and 8 (making them alkaline).

Eating a western diet that is low in natural and unrefined is a major cause of potassium deficiency. Find ways to increase the amount potassium in your diet. The correct level of potassium in your diet can remove the body's sensitivity to salt. Having too much table salt in foods can cause health complications. Overcome this by increasing the amount of potassium going into your body. A start is eating one or 2 bananas a day - but no more! The rest of the potassium intake should come from eating other potassium rich foods such as yams.

Burro bananas are also low in fat contain Vitamin B, C, fibre, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, iron, zinc, copper and selenium.

This product is usually delivered green to prevent them being damaged.

Choose to cook and eat them green or leave them to ripen in one or 2 days and eat them or add them to smoothies like a regular banana - but even healthier.

Jamaican Sweet Potato - 420g (medium)

No matter how far you travel or which place you visit, it's virtually impossible to locate a finer, more delicious or unique sweet potato variety than the hard to impersonate Jamaican sweet potato. For many these 100% natural sweet potatoes rank highly in taste, texture, smell and quality.

The only thing not in their favour is the extravagant price tag. But that's all to do with their scarcity (like rough diamonds) and their journey. They arrive in record breaking time by plane not ferry or boat like their cheaper priced competitors. Everyone knows the only mode of transport that is more rare or expensive is a British Rail train that arrives on time!

Many Jamaican expats spend their time running from shop to shop trying to locate a genuine Jamaican sweet potato. If you've been wondering how come Jamaica produces so many gold medal sprinters... Do not worry they are one of the few crops that grow all year-round. You do not don't need to be an olympic champion to get yours, in case you were planning to dust off your trainers!Just order a subscription box and have it delivered straight to your door.

This sweet potato is a valuable source of Vitamins A + C - two of the antioxidant vitamins known to help boost the immune system. A good source of iron and promotes the production of red blood cells which helps prevent anaemia, manganese a mineral which speeds up the bodies metabolism which is known to controls or balance bloods sugar levels and rather than spike sugar levels in the body. Sweet potatoes slowly release carbohydrates so after eating you feel fuller for longer, which is turn means that you are less likely to snack on unhealthy foods. This means they could be great for the waistline.

Cho Cho (two)

Cho Cho ( sometimes known as chayote and christophine) is a type of squash, it has a delicate taste.

Cho cho is rich antioxidant vitamin s B and C. The cho cho is usually treated as a vegetable and can be baked boiled or sautéed.

Experiment with the cho cho by using it as a fruit and eating it raw. Try adding it to a salad to make it more interesting. A bit like how an apple would be used in a Waldorf salad.

When used most people tend to peel them. To maximise the nutritional content of the cho cho you should wash it carefully and leave the skin on. A lot of the nutritional goodness in the food we eat is contained just under the surface of the skin - keep it and eat it raw or cooked.

To make it easier to use, cube or slice try chopping the cho cho in half length ways - expose and remove the hard seed. Keep the seed dry it out and grate it into your juices and smoothies to boost their antioxidant quotas.

Cho cho is already known as an addition to soups, meat and escovitch fish dishes where it absorbs the flavours and seasonings.

I have recently been introduced to a new way of using cho cho. It is prepared and seasoned using authentic herbs and spices and cooked as a side dish instead of roast potatoes - they are extremely low in carbs. I am sure this knowledge will add to their popularity.

If you have never tried this amazing food before, the best way to describe its taste is a cross between potato and cucumber.

There is only one disadvantage to this vegetable/fruit that I can find. They are extremely perishable. I have never tried freezing them. If you know of any way to make the cho cho last any longer, please drop me a note.
