You have another young coconut in your share today, which should be easier to open after honing your skills on last week’s slightly more mature green coconut!
There is a soursop (Annona muricata) in your share that is ripe or almost ripe. They are ready to eat when completely soft. Try eating it by scooping the flesh out with a spoon. It also makes a delicious juice, shake or ice-cream. Just remove the seeds from the pulp and blend until smooth. Add your favorite sweetner and milk.
The bananas today are a variety that is best cooked – once ripe, try them fried, mashed, or baked for a sweet or savory treat.
The mangoes are mostly Manzana and Julie, with some Asian varieties that are starting to mature now.
The sour oranges are packed with Vitamin C and other nutrients – try making an orangeade drink with a little bit of sweetener (honey, sugar, stevia or agave), or use it in place of lemon or lime in any dish.
Have a fruitful week!
