Rambutan

Chocolate Panna Cotta With Rum-Macerated Rambutan & Vanilla Panna Cotta With Blueberries

>
This  dessert is so fool-proof that it should feature prominently on the menu of folks who proclaim they can not cook and/or have no time to cook. Not only is extremely easy to prepare as far as desserts go, it is also super delicious and can easily be transformed into a whole new dessert by just adding another ingredient, such as chocolate, flavored syrup, fresh fruit, etc.
Quick, easy and delicious – my kind of dessert 🙂

Fruit – What’s Not To Love ? ! ………..

>
>
Ever  since I have started my “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan, many people have asked me:
“How can you survive on so much fruit without getting bored?”
My meal plan calls for fresh fruit (supplemented by power-bars, dried fruit and nuts) for breakfast, lunch and snacks.
Below find a small selection of typical fruit platters and fruit bowls I make at least once a day. Please notice that there are few (if any) “exotic fruits”.
I will of course buy other fruits besides the ones pictured, such as mango, rambutan, star fruit, kumquat, sapote, dragon fruit, passion fruit, dates, mongosteen, star apple, etc, but what you see below is my usual, daily staple. I usually make a large platter of mixed fruit and berries when I get home from work and put it in the fridge. Later, a few hours after dinner, I usually eat about half, then have the other half for breakfast. For lunch on workdays it’s usually apples, pears, mandarines and such. Lunch at home is usually a bit more elaborate, with grilled fruits and a small cup of sugar- free/fat-free yogurt or sugar-free sherbet thrown into the mix. Most fresh fruit meals are supplemented by either dried fruits, vegetable chips, powerbars and assorted nuts or a combination thereof.
I hope the pictures below will encourage you to eat more fruits and help you to believe that a plate of fruit does not have to be boring 🙂

End Of The Week Treat # 3 “Vodka Macerated Rambutans”

>

>
Yesterday  after work I finally was able to enjoy what had been getting ready in my fridge during the past week:
Probably the best dish that includes rambutan 🙂
Lately,  rambutan which used to be pretty exotic around here, have become easily available, but strangely enough, they are still not very popular. That’s actually a good thing, because it keeps the price down, at least for now.
In my opinion, rambutan is one of the best tasting, most beautiful fruits .  They lend them self to a large variety of uses. The following is one of my favorite ways of preparing them.
Peel the fruit, top with your favorite spirit, cover airtight and keep in refrigerator for at least 5 days. When you eat them, either just pick the fruit and use the liquid for something else, or do the “sensible” thing, eat them with a spoon, mixed with the liquid.  Either way, have fun, but please don’t operate heavy machinery after you enjoy these 🙂

Note: My favorite Spirits used to macerate are vodka, dark rum and red wine. Just make sure you use the best quality liquor you can afford, no point of skimping here.
