Real Cooking

Did You Know?
Fruits, are wholesome, appetizing, attractive, and occupy a valuable place in our diet. In fact, it is their attractiveness rather than their great food value that accounts for the popularity of fruits among all people.

In addition to causing fruits to appeal to the esthetic sense, their attractiveness serves another important purpose. Nature made fruits attractive in color, odor, and flavor in order that birds might be allured to attack them for food and, by spreading the seeds, assist in their propagation.

It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between vegetables and fruits. For instance, the tomato is in reality a fruit, but it is commonly used as a vegetable, and rhubarb is more of a vegetable than a fruit, but it is always used as a fruit.
