It feels like Summer has already arrived. The days have become so hot lately that I can’t even imagine how it’s going to feel when the season actually comes. I hate the sun. Can never stand the heat but one thing I love about it is the summer fruits in full swing on the trees.
Mango being my favourite, although I try to avoid it as much as I can because it isn’t very nice to me (end up with a face full of pimples), there’s one fruit I recently got introduced to thanks to the folks at Jain Farm Fresh and I loved it.
Known as the fruit of the Gods, Jamun is not everyone’s best friend. It has quite an acquired taste that many people haven’t taken much of a liking to.
Extremely tart in flavour, this leathery fruit holds a firm place in Hindu Mythology. Apparently, Lord Ram lived on the jamun for years after his exile from Ayodhya.
It is said to be grown on a jambu tree that lives for over 100 years and releases a nourishing fruit that is rich with life-giving juices. It is extremely useful in the treatment of diabetes and stomach ailments.
If you find it difficult to get access to this fruit or interested in finding a new way to eat it, you must try out Jain Farm Fresh’s Frozen Jamun Pulp that is sold all through the year.
I decided to do a Jamun Curd Crumble since I’m on a health spree. It’s a 6 ingredient fix that can includes no form of cooking.
Have it chilled and oh, it’s a real summer delight!
