Parting Words

Aside from its medicinal properties, the “pandan” leaves are commonly used here in the Philippines to make cooked rice taste and smell better. A ripe “papaya” fruit is delicious and can be a great dessert. A green papaya is usually cooked as an ingredient in vegetable viands. Its quiet surprising that the corn hair has its medicinal value especially in treating cystitis.
