Spring Onion

You might hear the spring onion referred to as scallion or green onion. The name varies but it is essentially the same thing and including in world cooking.

You can uses the whole onion, not just the white bulb at the end but also the green stalks.

They can be eaten hot or cold in salads. Carefully wash the spring onion before use. Often in haste to get these products from the field to the hands of the customer they skip on some of the washing process. So it is not unusual to find that they contain some soil and the odd bug or 2. This speed is needed as spring onions perish rapidly.

Keep buying them as they are packed with essential nutrients needed to support the immune system - vitamin A, C, B2 as well as the lesser known vitamins such as copper, phosphorus, magnesium. Spring onions or scallion if that is what you know them as, provide potassium. It is important to get your potassium intake from a range of fresh produce and not just from bananas.

To keep them for longer, wash and cut them up and freeze them and used them in cooking straight from the freezer.
To preserve them in the fridge, one trick is to wash and cut them up and store them in a glass jar. No need to buy on, just re-use an old jar rather than recycling it. Re-using items is a good habit to adopt.

Avocado

Once considered exotic, nowadays avocados are all over the place: showing up in recipes for salads, smoothies, sandwiches and dips. When eaten in a salad or as a side dish avocados are treated as a vegetable.

Valuable source of Vitamin E, B6 and Potassium. There is some confusion that leads to concern that this delicious, nutritious produce is fattening. They do contain fat but not the kind of fat that is harmful. The fat found in avocados is monounsaturated fat and it has been suggested that eating foods ,such as avocados, that contain the right kind of fat, lowers cholesterol and may even lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Enjoy avocados without the feelings of guilt usually associated with other high fat foods especially chocolate, biscuits and cake each of which contain the wrong kind of fat (saturated fat) and often lead to common health complaints especially when consumed in large quantities. If you are going to include saturated fat in your diet it is probably best to consume butter, coconut oil and palm oil because these fats are usually consumed in far smaller quantities.

This larger, smooth skinned variety is typically eaten with bread, especially hard dough bread or with bulla a round basic firm sweet cake, When eaten with bread and bulla avocados function as cheese or butter.

Gungo Peas Tins 400g

I am not sure when it happened but nowadays it is rare to be served rice and peas cooked with gungo peas or pigeon peas as a they are also known. They are seasonal and come fresh in December. During the rest of the year they are available canned (like these) or frozen. They are sometimes available dried but they are so hard to come by. Most give up and turn to a different type of peas.

If like me, you only occasionally eat rice and pea the odd canned ingredient is fine. I prefer to go this route as the popular bean that tends to always get served with rice has an unusual effect on my digestive system. They cause me to bloat and often cause a pain. I used to blame it on the rice and so switched to brown rice. Nothing changed. Then I remembered when my grandmother used to eat rice and peas cooked with kidney beans she routinely left the red beans or peas on the side of her plate. When I asked her about this she told me that they needed to be soaked over night to remove the toxin called lectin. If you forgot to do this you could get around the problem by cooking them for longer or using a pressure cooker. She told me that both alternative methods were unsafe. I always check that they have been prepared properly or travel with a tin of gungo peas instead. After all they are more authentic and traditional in Jamaican cuisine.

Carrots

Children believe carrots to be good for the eyes sight.

That's only part of the story.
Other fruit and vegetables especially ones brightly coloured orange, red and yellow are also good choices. It is due to the pigment or natural colours known in the scientific world as "carotenoids" that must give carrots their reputation. Carotenoids are found naturally in many plants and eating them transfers an important vitamin known as beta- carotene into human body.

When taken into the body these same vitamins are converted into Vitamin A, one of the free radical fighting vitamins that is essential for general health and supporting the bodies natural infection fighting defence mechanism. Also referred to as the immune system.
