How to make Chinese Candied Fruit Kabob! :)

So a couple weeks ago my dad and I decided to make some Chinese Fruit Kabobs and even though officially, the Chinese New year has already passed..these Kabobs still make a delicious and festival treat!

1) Step 1, prepare some fresh fruit ! ( we used some Chinese thornapple since that is the tradition choice for Candied Fruit Kabob but any small to medium size fruit such as grapes, strawberries, kiwis or oranges will be just fine)

2) Arrange the fruits and place them on some kabob sticks ! Make sure the fruit are arranged closely so they stick together because that is key for later on .

3) Prepare a few cups of brown sugar( Sorry, dad doesn’t believe in exact measurements) and caramelize the sugar by boiling it in water in a large pot ( make sure to stir the pot thoroughly to create a consistent texture without overcooking the brown sugar).

4) Ladies and gentlemen: Sugar-coat you Kabobs please 🙂 Dip and coat the fruit Kabobs that has been prepped already with the caramelized brown sugar to form a thin layer of coat around the fruits.

5) Place your candied fruit kabobs in the freezer for 2-3 hours and Voila !

Ponder a little Leo Tolstoy on Valentine’s Days!

As  V-day approaches us ferociously in less than 24 hours, what is a better way to celebrate this holiday by having my first blog ever ( my roommate has finally succeed her effort to peer pressured me for the past couple months to finally get on the blogosphere).  Anyway, here is a little V-day quote from Leo Tolstoy as I eat a chocolate+ Raspberry pudding/yogurt:

All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.

So what is your thought about love and Valentines’s Day?

p.s. Did you know that Tolstoy actually attempted to leave his wife on numerous occasions  and he finally succeeded at the age 82 which resulted in him catching and  dying from pneumonia. Or like my dear roommate LongJohn Smith (aka AmandaKait)’s theory ” maybe the struggle with his wife inspired the creation of War and Peace”.

love is the hardest game of all
