Soursop - 1kg

Sour sop is a fruit with a thick outer skin with short spikes. Cut it to reveal a white pulpy flesh that is sweet tasting (you must remove the small shiny seeds before eating). The taste – hmmm? Try mixing strawberries, pineapples and banana together in your imagination and that should be close to the truth. The fruit is usually juiced.

The cytotoxic effects of soursop is what gives it such attention. Is it possible that this fruit is able to fight the effects of a life threatening disease such as cancer? The experts are not certain.

What is clear is that soursop contains high levels of Vitamin C which surely classifies it as a super food rich in antioxidants.

Jelly Coconut (choose quantity Maximum 7)

Some coconuts are harvested early at their jelly stage; this is between seven and nine months. It is in this state that the coconut is full of sweet refreshing coconut water and a thin layer of soft, jelly like flesh. Crack the top enough to make a hole big enough to fit a straw and then enjoy the taste reap the health benefits of this natural drink.

Guava (3)

Pink guavas are a round fruit about 5 or 6 cm in size. They have a smooth green or yellow edible skin and pink or salmon coloured flesh. They have a strong tropical fragrance.

Pink guavas tend to be slightly acidic with a complex and bitter/sweet flavour.

The sweetest guavas will be firm and heavy and the skin will be turning yellow. The skin, flesh and seeds are all edible in their natural state.
If you are feeling adventurous, look out for recipes and dishes that feature pink guavas.

Green Bananas (6)

Green bananas are used as a vegetable, in place of rice, pasta or potatoes. Steam them, boil them mash them or use them instead of meat in a spicy curry dish. I have even experimented using them instead of pastry as a base for a homemade quiche. This is done by boiling and mashing them. Baking the base "blind" makes it crispy and flaky and more like the pastry you are trying to replace. If you have ever eaten or made a cheesecake the principle is the same - a biscuit is mashed up to form a base.

If boiling green bananas cook them separately, you can leave the skin on, wash them well first as bananas, just the same as every other crop grown outside, are spayed with chemicals to help them grow and keep the insects from feeding on them before the humans get a chance.

One trick to use when boiling green bananas in their skins, is to put a teaspoon of cooking oil in the water. It prevents the pot from turning black from the colour that leaves the green banana skin when they are cooked. It works! (Remove the skin before eating).

Green bananas have a low glycemic index (30). These types of foods prevent the blood sugar levels from rising. If you are diabetic you probably know the importance of this. It is likely that you are already seeking out substitutions for other carbohydrates to put on your plate. Green bananas can fill that void.

Although a starch, green bananas are 'resistant starch'. The body cannot absorb resistant starch or break it down and digest it in the normal way. Therefore, once eaten it passes from the small intestine into the large intestine. Once there, it begins to act like a special type of fibre (insoluble fibre) which helps to prevent constipation and ease symptoms of IBS and helps to keep cholesterol in check.

Green bananas are a valuable source of minerals such potassium (helpful for kidney and blood pressure health) magnesium, copper and manganese. Vitamin C and B6. They also help the body to absorb calcium from other calcium rich foods. Green banana porridge made with your choice of milk makes a healthy substitution breakfast cereal.

Green bananas have reputation for providing additional iron. I am not certain why this is. Eaten green they certainly do provide more iron than a yellow banana. However, neither variety is significantly high in iron to be consumed for this reason alone.

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.
