Announcing AFAM



This month i got the opportunity of hosting this wonderful event AFAM ,A Fruit A Month, started by Maheshwari of Beyond The Ususal. But when i looked at previous AFAM's ,i saw most of the fruits (known and even unknown to me too...) are already hosted . Then when i browsed , i came to know, that there are a lot of fruits , which are known to us as vegetables, but are actually fruits, like the previous months fruits pumpkin and Jack fruit and also tomato, bittergourd, cucumber, beans, eggplant , peanuts, and even bellpeppers are actually fruits.OMG.

In botany, a fruit is the ripened ovary—together with seeds—of a flowering plant. In simple terms,if u wanna know, what you have is a fruit or vegetable, just check DOES IT HAVE SEEDS? If the answer is yes, then technically, you have a FRUIT. Check the source for more info.

So finally....i decided of this month's fruit for AFAM as 'CUCUMBER'. I like cucumber very much, so i thought its a nice oppurtunity for me to have loads n loads of tried cucumber recipes with me, at my blog itself. So nice isin't it. So please guys, send me loads of them. For more info on cucumbers check wikipedia.

Some guidelines for this event:

1. Prepare any recipe using Cucumber as its main ingredient and post about it on your blog by 2nd, April, 2009

2. Multiple entries are most welcome. You can also send from archieves, provided it should be properly updated and reposted.Posts should be linked back to this event to this announcement post and Maheshwari's blog.

3. Send the following details to neha.agrawal.2610(at)gmail(dot)com with the AFAM: Cucumber as its subject line
