 TRIVIA
============================================= ==============
Some of the foods native to the Americas and used by the Aztecs at the time of the Spanish arrival were chocolate, vanilla, corn, chilies (peppers), peanuts, tomatoes, avocados, squash, beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pineapple and papaya. The influence of these foods on world cuisine is staggering. Just eliminate all of them from almost any cuisine in the world to imagine the effect.

READERS QUESTIONS
============================================= ==============
QUESTION: Hi Chef,
 Do you have any recipes for Atamoya fruit ? Do you have a description of what kind of fruit it is besides tropical ? What fruit family is it close to ? Darlene

ANSWER: The atemoya is a cross between a cherimoya and a sweetsop. It has cream colored, custardy pulp that is rich, sweet and with dark, slippery seeds (like watermelon seeds). The taste is described as like vanilla custard with a hint of mango. They are gray/green with a tough bumpy skin.
The family is the Annona or custard apple family. Other fruits in the family are cherimoya and sweetsop (sugar apple) as mentioned, and the custard apple and guanabana.

He imported 1,400 varieties of grapevines to California in 1862 and planted the first large vineyard in California in the Sonoma Valley.  After the devastating blight destroyed much of Europe's vineyards, some of these same vines, now on resistant root stock, helped rescue the French and German wine industries.

 RECIPE REQUESTS FROM READERS
============================================= ==============
I'm looking for an old fashioned recipe for candied pumpkin.  Can you help?

from La Cuisine Creole, by Lafcadio Hearn (1885)
Candied Pumpkin
Peel a piece of pumpkin, and cut it in thin slices. Make a nice, thick syrup of brown sugar and water, and put the pumpkin into it, with a little of the juice of the lemon. boil this until the pumpkin is nicely candied. Mace, or other spices, may be used for flavoring instead of lemon, if preferred. it may be eaten hot with meats at dinner, and is equally nice, when cold, for supper or lunch.
