Tomatoes

Procedure:

  • Remove the tips of the green beans, wash and then microwave, blanch or boil for a minute or two.

    • Orange juice ‘n’ fruit salad

      Ingredients:

      • Apple wedges
      • Papaya cubes
      • Oranges

      Procedure:

      • For the salad, combine the apple and papaya in layers in a bowl.
      • For the orange juice, you need about 4 to 5 oranges depending on the size of the oranges or your glass.
      • Wash the oranges, cut them cross-wise into two and squeeze them using an orange squeezer. Prior to this, you may peel off the rind using a knife if you are concerned that the zest will enter and give the juice a bitter taste. This is especially necessary if the oranges have thick rind.
      • Sieve the juice and pour into a glass.
      • Enjoy.
