VOCABULARY Flower Root Tuber Bulb Stem Leaf Seed Fruit Staple Semi-perishable Perishable UNIT 6
1.Fold your paper into 8 equal parts as shown. 2.Draw a dirt line 3.Draw a stem 4.Add a leaf tuber bulb root stem leaves fruit seeds flower
VEGGIES Fruit: ripened ovary of a plant with fused adjacent parts Vegetable: other edible parts of a plant Tomatoes…… fruit or vegetable???? Vegetables are commonly part of the main course. Fruits are usually appetizers, dessert, or eaten “out of hand” Available: fresh, frozen, canned, dried Staple: will keep some time without refrigeration Semi-perishable: will keep for sometime if refrigerated Perishable: poor keeping quality even if refrigerated http://www.sciencebob.com/questions/q-tomato_fruit_vegetable.php
Ch. 6 ~ FRUITS & VEGGIES Provides many vitamins and minerals. Vegetables come from many parts of a plant: FlowerRootTuberBulb StemLeafSeedFruit Broccoli Cauliflower Artichokes Garlic Onions Shallots Celery Asparagus Scallions Leeks Peas Corn Edamame Limas Carrots Beets Parsnips Radish Turnip Potatoes Sweet potatoes Yams Spinach Lettuce Cabbage Chard Leaf Buds: Brussel Sprouts Tomatoes Pumpkins Cucumbers Zucchini String bean Squash Pepper
What are legumes? http://www.dietriffic.com/2007/09/09/what-are-legumes/
Bell Ringer You have 2 minutes to share with your group your favorite way to have a certain vegetable prepared. (For me, I can’t decide between steamed carrots with honey & butter OR grilled zucchini! My Lindsey says she loves artichokes stuffed & steamed!)
Veggie Cookery The greener the vegetable, the higher it is in vitamins and minerals. Which is nutritionally better, spinach or ice-burg lettuce? Cooking vegetables helps humans to digest veggies more easily. Goals in cooking veggies: 1)preserve nutritive value, 2)enhance flavors & textures, 3)retain shape & color Two methods of cooking veggies: 1)Moist (boil, fry, steam, stir-fry) 2)Dry (bake, broil) Effects of cooking: 1) soften 2) reduce bulk 3) destroy microorganisms 4) starch can be digested
Veggie Cookery Remember: 1)Use the least amount of water possible B vitamins, vitamin C, & minerals are dissolved readily in water… the less water, the less nutritional loss) 2)Cover the container B vitamins & Vitamin C are destroyed by heat & air 3) Bring water to a boil to shorten cooking time 4)Add fat after cooking (A, D, & E are dissolved in fat) 5)Cook in as large pieces as possible (the more cut edges, the more nutrients lost) 6)Cook quickly to avoid color loss. 7) Do not use baking soda 8) Cook only until tender
VEGGIES COLOR Green: due to cholrophyll, does not dissolve in water – will change to olive green when heated. Baking soda may keep color green, but destroys nutrients Yellow & Orange: due to carotenoids – also insoluble in water the body converts carotene into vitamin A. Vitamin A is found in yellow & dark green veggies. (The dark green masks the yellow). What kind of vitamin is vitamin A? Red: (purple or blue): anthocyanins, soluble in water.. The color will fade/disappear when cooked. White: anthoxanthins, soluble in water, whiter if cooked with acid such as cream of tartar, lemon juice, vinegar… don’t use baking soda for the acid!
