A taste of home in faraway Borneo.
Breadfruit is a fruit in the Artocarpus genus, so it is related to jackfruit and buah tarap but the flesh is very starchy and not at all sweet like its cousins. With origins in Papua New Guinea, it is cultivated and eaten in tropical regions all over the world, from Southeast Asia, to the Indian Ocean, to the Caribbean, to Central America, to the Pacific Islands.
In Malaysia breadfruit is called “buah sukun”; in Hawaii it is called “ulu”. I call it “good eats”
I’m mad. Insane. Cuckoo over cones. Somebody help me!
Day 29 of the 30-day Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge and I’m still thinking up crazy things to do with the Royal Selangor Jelly Moulds. Case in point, this comical, conical “Angry Bird” clone cone that I made using pureed mango, food coloring, milk and agar-agar.
This popsicle has got some serious pucker!
Tamarind-Ancho Chile Popsicle
When Annie was looking for different recipes to try for the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge, she happened upon this recipe for Tamarind-Ancho Chile Popsicle on Saveur. She said she could actually imagine the sweet-sour-spicy flavors, and it made her mouth water. So she put it down as one of our options. Last night, she tasked me with making it (the instructions seemed easy enough for me to do).
Taking the apple pie to heights never before seen!
Man, this truly almost became a pie-in-the-sky project! I’ve been thinking of apples and how to use them in the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge and as Nate hinted at in yesterday’s Mulled Apple Cider Konnyaku post, this was supposed to be part of that post.
Why wasn’t it part of the post? Well, obviously there were some hiccups so we had to problem-solve the issues and thankfully, it all worked out and here it is now today. Better late than never!
