Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Jamoon fruit brings many sweet memories in my mind.. These fruits are seasonal and we used to wait for it. During school days, we used to run to the houses where these trees were grown. House people enjoying their afternoon nap were never disturbed till one stone fell on their roof or window glass :-). And then there were few old ladies carrying these jamoon fruits in their round baskets and selling it for 10 Paises. I always love the color of these fruits.
This season, my daughter enjoyed these fruits. When I saw the event "Food palette series purple", the idea struck me to make juice with it. But I was not sure whether I will get the time to do it before July 5th. And I could do it today afternoon. But again my problem was the internet connection which was playing hide and seek with me. Luckily its working now and I hope it will be there till I finish the post and publish it :-) (I never pray to God for anything else than this broadband service :-)), seriously, God is more kind than this service :-))) )
