Do you know Bambangan might have cancer fighting benefits? Yesterday I asked everyone if they saw any of the fruits in a sets of picture. Most of you haven't seen the fruits in picture number one. Its a Bambangan, a mango like fruits but the skin is hard and brown colour. Thanks to Girlie, She give me a link of a recent medical studies about extracts of the Bambangan kernel might have breast cancer fighting properties. The kernel of this fruit has been shown to be rich in antioxidants like Gallic acid and rutin.
Hmmm... That article by Medpedia really make me glad that I love to eat Jeruk Bambangan (Bambangan Pickle) so much. Not everyone can make the Jeruk Bambangan since the process is a little bit hard to do. You need to make sure you don't make a mistake on making it or the taste of the Jeruk Bambangan will be terrible. My dad can make the best Jeruk Bambangan in the world. Will try to persuade him later to show all of you his own recipes of this Sabah Food.
There are many recipes for Jeruk Bambangan but the best one is looking for Jeruk Bambangan with grated Bambangan seed. The grated Bambangan seed will make it last longer and taste even better. I normally eat them with fried fish and rice. I remember last year, I gain 2 kilo of weight because I eat too much of Jeruk Bambangan and rice. When my father make his Jeruk Bambangan, I will not stop add my rice portion when I eat. Its like eating none stop until you feel full. Nyum.., Nyum....
Don't forget to read this article by Medpedia given by Girlie. Thanks again Girlie.
Have you eat Jeruk Bambangan before?
