Jumboo is a fruit

15 March 2004

Everyone told me that it tastes like watermelon, and let me tell you, it doesn’t. It’s more like a cross between a crab apple – small and sour like a crab apple – and a fluffy not dense apple. It wasn’t as sour as crab apples can be – it was just slightly sour, definitely bearable, and it tasted pretty good. I think it would make a great jam.

Howdy and welcome to my site! I'm Laurie and I'll be your, er, hostess today. :)

I'm a Canadian expat currently living in Singapore. I'm married to a Sri Lankan and lived in Sri Lanka for nearly a decade. We also lived in New Zealand for half a year.

I cook Sri Lankan curries, sambols, and mallungs. I bake bread using wild yeast (sourdough that isn't sour). I bake on the stove. I experiment with Indian / Malaysian / Indonesian / Thai / whatever cuisines interest me. And I experiment wildly.

Life is an adventure. Join me! :)
