The following article about the use of a basic food category is devoted to an item that in most minds should only be served raw. Fruit, nonetheless, offers many variations; and if the recipe allows, it can be cooked under low heat without losing any vitamins.

First of all let's determine what is fruit. It seems there is some confusion in this area. Botanically speaking, fruits are all seed bearing crops which means that the seeds for further reproduction come from the fruit itself. Tomatoes, cucumbers and paprika are botanically considered to be fruits.  From the view point of culinary though, sweet crops are acknowledged as fruits and non sweet crops as vegetables. For our purposes we are inclined towards the second category as well.
