Food Trip Friday 065: Jackfruit!

When my landlord and his family returned to Phnom Penh after spending their New Year holidays in his hometown in Stung Treng, they brought us a lot of things for pasalubong! One of them was this medium-sized khnao, or jackfruit, that I cut in half. The sweet scent of khnao filled our kitchen for several days.

I don’t really like jackfruit eaten as it is but I love it when it’s made into a smoothie. A perfect thirst-quencher.

Food Trip Friday 064: Jacket potatoes

Here’s what my husband made during our BBQ lunch last Sunday:
After lunch, when the fire was dying, he wrapped potatoes in tin foil and threw them into the coals. Served up one hour later with melted butter and cheese. We did the same for kamote (sweet potatoes).
