Cooking With Fruits

Cooking and Baking using fresh fruit is always one of my hobby. I love to use different kinds of fresh fruits in my cooking. These are some of the example of fruits that I have tried and use in my cooking and baking before.

October Sun Plum is large and golden yellow in color, the flesh is also yellow, very juicy, and mild taste.

The actual name of this fruit is called "Mayounchit" in Thailand according to one of my blog pal in Bangkok. But then in Singapore some of the fruit stall called it Thai Mini Mango too. To me it taste and smell sort of like mango and it taste either sweet or sour depending on the one you choose. Posted by Picasa
