Stewed Fruit using Choko - Inexpensive, Low Kj

Postby CronicBadger » Sun May 29, 2011 5:25 pm

I was recently told that chokos will absorb the taste of whatever they are cooked with, and that one old trick from the olden days when fruit was expensive and difficult to come by was to stew apples and/or pears up with an equal amount of chokos.

I have several buckets of chokos sitting in the garage, harvested several weeks ago from the vines trailing over the fence. I've mashed them, boiled them, baked them but still they keep multiplying like Mickey Mouse's brooms in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".

So now I'm stewing them.

Today four apples, a pear, and about twenty chokos were diced and thrown into a big pot of boiling water for a couple of hours. The resulting mush tastes like apple, retains much of its apple-ly taste and sweetness, cost almost nothing and will go really well as a dessert when combined with some fat-free yogurt.

So, a healthy, low-sugar dessert at a negligible cost. A winner all round!
