In Season: Cherimoyas

@wookie: Yes, pawpaws are in the same family (Annonaceae) as the custard-apple, cherimoya, sweetsop, ylang-ylang, and soursop. Thanks for reading!

In Season: Oranges

@cybercita: Exactly-- I am allowing eating on the subway and I am not taking any action against it. Thanks for your definition and clearing that up!

Happy orange eating to all!

In Season: Oranges

@cybercita: You know when someone whips out a plate of buffalo wings or something that is very fragrant...I am just saying that it is not my favorite thing to smell on the subway, but you certainly can't ask the subway eater to refrain.

@Potboiler: Would love to try your marmalade recipe!

In Season: Leeks

@NouveauDish: Please do try this recipe! It is fantastic. Let me know how it turns out: http://www.forksandfigs.com/2009/08/papa-al-pomodoro.html

Healthy & Delicious: Homemade Peppermint Patties

I cant wait to try these! I make a similar cookie with Ritz crackers dipped in mint chocolate candy melts. They taste just like Thin Mint cookies and are highly addictive!

In Season: Pumpkin

Thanks for all your comments! Using a "regular" pumpkin to make a puree can be difficult and yes, there will be an excess liquid problem. However, I simply reduce the puree (after cleaning, baking, scooping, emuslifying, and straining) by simmering over low heat until the liquid evaporates. After about 30 minutes I achieved my desired consistency. I hope this helps!

In Season: Pineapple

@Dimah. Sorry for the error. I will fix that ASAP.

I'm not sure it it would be healthier, but it would be a nice thing to mix up your usual routine. If you paired it with some fruit and yogurt you might come out about the same on the nutrition scale!

Hi! I am so glad that you found it and hope it turns out delicious.
