Some Peachy hints………………………..

Peaches get sweeter and juicier as they ripen. Squeezing them will tell you what stage they’re at. Gently press or squeeze the shoulder and tip (where the stem was) – if it just starts to give, it’s ripe and ready to eat.

Then to ripen peaches quickly, store them in a brown paper bag, which will trap the ethylene gas that causes the fruit to ripen. To ripen the peaches even faster, put a banana or apple in the bag with them so there’s more ethylene gas being emitted.

Toppings for your Cheesecake……………………

If the top of your cheesecake forms a crack, just cover it up! Top the cheesecake with a fruit topping, sour cream topping, or jam. Plus for a pretty presentation, cover the top of the cheese cake with fresh fruit such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries, and then make the berries glisten by brushing on a bit of warmed jam or jelly. Add fruit toppings shortly before serving.

A good way to tell if a Mango is ripe…………………….

One of the best tests you can do to determine a mango’s ripeness is to give it a gentle squeeze. A good mango will give slightly. If it feels too hard and there is no give at all, the mango is not yet ripe. On the other hand, if a mango is overly soft, that is a bad thing too. When it is very squishy, it typically means that the mango is about to rot.

Storing Grapes…………………

To keep grapes at their freshest, store them unwashed in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Unrinsed stem-on grapes fared best, lasting nearly two weeks before starting to decay. In fact, as long as you periodically inspected the bunches and removed any decaying grapes, most of them—both red and white samples—kept for an entire month. In sum: Don’t pull grapes from their stems before refrigeration.

One of America’s Favorites – Corn fritter

Bowl of corn fritters

Corn fritters are fritters made of corn. Originating in Native American cuisine, they are a traditional sweet and savory snack in the Southern United States, as well as Indonesia where they are known as perkedel jagung or bakwan jagung.

Native Americans had been using ground corn (maize) as food for thousands of years before European explorers arrived in the New World. Corn-based products, such as corn flatbread, arepa and cornbread were staple foods in Pre-Columbian Americas. Native Americans did not use deep frying techniques, however, which require ample supplies of cooking oil as well as equipment in which the oil can be heated to high temperatures.

European settlers learned recipes and processes for corn dishes from Native Americans, and soon devised their own cornmeal-based variations of European breads made from grains available on that continent. The corn fritter probably was invented in the Southern United States, whose traditional cuisine contains a lot of deep fried foods, none more famous perhaps than Southern fried chicken.

Bakwan jagung, Indonesian corn fritters

On the other side of the world, maize seeds from the Americas were introduced into Southeast Asia in the late 16th century through Spanish and Portuguese traders. The plant thrived in the tropical climate of Indonesia, and soon became a staple food plant in drier areas of central and southeastern Indonesia, since it requires much less water than wet rice. Coconut and palm oil have been essential elements of Indonesian cuisine for centuries. The deep fried technique using palm oil was probably borrowed from Portuguese colonists; and Indonesia has its own type of corn fritter, called perkedel jagung or bakwan jagung.

Ingredients

Southern United States
Traditional corn fritters in the American South use corn kernels, egg, flour, milk, and melted butter. They can be deep fried, shallow fried, baked, and may be served with jam, fruit, honey, or cream. They may also be made with creamed corn, baked, and served with maple syrup. Corn fritters can be made to have a similar appearance to, and thus be mistaken for, johnnycake.

Indonesia
Indonesian corn fritters are not sweet but savory. They have a more granulated texture, as the corn kernels are not finely ground and blended into the dough, so they retain their kernel shapes. The fritter is made from fresh corn kernels, wheat flour, rice flour, celery, scallion, eggs, shallots, garlic, salt and pepper, and deep fried in coconut oil. They are a popular snack and are often served as an appetizer.
