***. I've had pandanus plants around me since birth, and it is a ubiquitious flavoring in Asian dishes/desserts. I've never once seen this flower. It isn't the fruit that we eat anyway. Pandanus, or Pandan, is valued for its leaves and the unique aroma that it lends to rice, waters, syrups and dishes.

Nobody eats that flower/fruit. I thought it was a jackfruit

Interesting. Do you steep the leaves and then remove them or grind them and add to dishes?

It is always steeped and removed, or cooked together with and removed at the end. Tied in a bundle before hand. It grows like a weed, and is virtually indestructible - reproducing using cuttings. We have it in an egg jam - kaya, Pandan Cake, countless pandan desserts. It has a very pleasant smell/aroma.

Some drivers around here leave bundles in their car, as they believe the smell wards off bugs. I always thought that was hokey, but hey, its a nice smell so no complaints when I pop into a cab and it smells like Pandan.

steeley
03-23-2012, 01:58 AM
Definition: Pandan is a herbaceous tropical plant with long green leaves. In Southeast Asia, pandan leaves are used to lend a unique taste and aroma to many Thai desserts and some drinks. Pandan leaves can also be used to wrap savory foods, such as chicken (see recipe links below). Pandan paste is used in cakes and desserts, as it is sweet and imbues foods with a bright green color. It can be purchased as a ready-to-use paste in Asian specialty stores. If purchased fresh, pandan leaves should be pounded into a paste for use in desserts, adding water sparingly.

Tristan

Hmm we always used the juice not the paste. Though since it is edible I guess that works too. It isn't just thai. Malaysian, singaporean, indonesian cooking all features this plant very heavily. Dirt cheap too.

Vanilla orchids originally came from Mexico where pollination was carried out by a local tiny bee :
the melipone.
In other countries, including Madagascar, it must be carried out by hand since the melipone only exists in Mexico.
It took years to develop - at the end of the 19th century - a successful method of pollinating the flower by manís hand.http://www.kafrin.com/bloom/from_bloom_to_bean.htm
