Foods in Season

Posted October 27th, 2008 in Food 2 Comments »

Here in Perth, the summer seems to be just around the corner.  The Daylight Saving started in WA state and the clocks went forward an hour, so the sun is up till 8pm now.  During the summer outside is still bright around 9pm – 10pm, so I sometimes get confused “is it night time now??”

Strawberries, blueberries, melons etc were very cheap till couple weeks ago.  They are spring fruits and I enjoyed them a lot 🙂  For strawberries and blueberries I bought them in bulk and froze them.  You can easily make nice fruit smoothies or some fruit sauce for pancakes at home:)

On the other hand, my dad told me that the autumn fruits are getting in their season in Japan and Nashi pears and Passimons are very tasty.  I love any fruits, but my favorite is Nashi pears.  They are not really sweet and have not so much  flavor, but that’s why I love them:)  I love watery food.

You can get Nashi pears in Perth, and my friend told me that they are available in America and Hawaii as well,  so I guess you can get them in any country now.  But of course the price is high :p  I still think Nashi in Japan is the best.

    The sun’s still up at 10PM??

    The weather in Tokyo is getting cooler…and it’s getting dark at about 5:30 or 6PM.

    And 梨は美味しい! (Pears are delicious)!

    Yes, outside is still bright and hot till 10pm. Australia is a summer country 🙂

    I like winter in Japan though. The daytime is very short and get dark early… stay in kotatsu and watch tv 🙂
