Having stated my Ramadan fasting a few days early, as you do, my focus for iftar (breaking of the fast), and suhoor (pre-fast meal) is long-lasting sustenance. Out go white bread and other short-lasting foodstuffs; replaced with complex carbs such as legumes and natural fibres. Fruit, as ever with us, plays a big part – why else would you live on a fruit farm?
So, for tonight’s midnight munching, it’s the turn of the Apricot. As with all the fruits this season, the apricots are late by over a month, almost two, and very few in number, but what we do have is certainly large, sweet and succulent.
What’s my Ramadan diet?
