Welcome to my blog! I create this blog mainly to document my food, to share cooking ideas/tips, and to preserve my not yet-written family recipes. I prefer to cook using fresh ingredients and/or what are available. I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, creating meals. I cook with my senses so I hope this blog will help me record what I cook/create. I am a practicing family nurse practitioner, a photographer and I live to eat. Please join me in my culinary journey!

Boiled Jackfruit Seeds
I have eaten jackfruit numerous times in my life. However, I have never eaten a jackfruit seed before. My aunt and uncle planted a tree in the back of their home and it has been very productive. At times the tree bears so many fruits that they have to give some to my cousins who have a coffee and juice cafe in Soctrang. When I visited them recently, my aunt (Kiểm) and I removed the edible meat from the jackfruit and saved the seeds. She cooked the seeds in gently boiling water for about thirty to forty minutes until they are soft. Once the seeds are soft, drain the water and let them cool completely. Before eating peel the outer brown/tan layers from the cooked seeds. These seeds tasted a bit similar to cooked peanuts. Next time you purchase a whole jackfruit remember to save the seeds so you can enjoy these delicious and healthy treats!
