On The Hunt for Letter "H" !!

Yesterday my wife and myself were back at the supermarket doing our fruit and veggie shopping but also on the hunt for the @alphabethunt contest run by @barbara-orenya and this week begins the hunt for letter "H" so follow us down the aisles and see what we can find starting with the letter "H" honestly this reminds me of the little games we use to play as kids , i spy with my little eye i am sure we have all played this game at some stage of our childhood life 🤣 anyway lets move on.

Let's start of with the "Hairy Melon Vegetable" this vegetable is used in many Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisines it looks like a Zucchini only it's hairy and the other interesting fact is that the Zucchini belongs to the squash family were as the Hairy Melon belongs to the gourd family.


They say the Hairy Melon vegetable is a very refreshing vegetable to consume on warm days it has various cooling properties and apart from having many beneficial vitamins it also helps eliminate heartburn.


The "Hass Avocado" there are a few types of avocados and you may wonder well they all look like avocados to me but there is the smooth skin and the bumper skin avocados such as the Hass Avocado this avocado is richer in taste is considered great for the skin and much healthy as it contains less fat then the other types of avocados and again these avocados have many beneficial vitamins.



The "Hot Chili Peppers" well we all know how world wide these are used in many recipes around the world and you know what i learned today about Hot Chili Peppers they are not a vegetable they are a fruit belonging to the nightshade family, Solanaceae. The Hot Chili Peppers are related to the eggplant , tomatoes and cherries that is amazing to know i would have thought related to eggplant , tomatoes but not related to cherries that's from one extreme to the other burning hot to sweet it blows me out.


Now let's go to some thing that is really sweet the "Honeydew Melon" this is one fruit that i could eat all day and now this is really classed as a fruit and not a vegetable before we get to confused here 🤣


This Honeydew is full of good potassium a fruit that will help you keep your blood pressure levels in order.


Here we have the very tasty "Hazelnuts" used in many ways but for me i love hazelnut ice-cream and i think many would agree with me here but also they are high in nutritious great in aiding for your joints , bones and muscles also great for your body skin.


And last is amazing tasting "Herbs" these we absolutely can not go without in flavoring our foods whether it is sprinkled over our foods or added into our recipes it is a must where would we be without our Herbs.


Italian Basil and Thai Basil Herbs.


Herb Parsley.


Herb Mint.



Thank you @barbara-orenya for this fun and educational challenge 😊
