How did I get this recipe?

The memory of finding this recipe for the first time brings a smile to my face. It was many years ago, when I was just a young girl living in the countryside with my parents. We didn't have much, but we always made the best of what we had. My mother was a wonderful cook, and she taught me everything I know about making delicious meals from scratch.

One day, a distant relative came to visit us from the city. She was a wealthy woman, and she brought with her a basket full of exotic fruits that I had never seen before. As she unpacked the basket, she told us stories of her travels and the delicious foods she had encountered along the way. One particular fruit caught my eye - a small, round fruit with a sweet and tangy flavor that I had never tasted before.

Intrigued, I asked my relative what it was called. She smiled and said it was called a lacto fruit, and that it was commonly used in desserts and puddings in the city. She offered to teach me how to make a fruit pudding using the lacto fruit, and I eagerly accepted her offer.

We spent the afternoon in the kitchen, peeling and chopping the fruit, mixing it with sugar and spices, and simmering it on the stove until it was thick and fragrant. The smell that filled the kitchen was like nothing I had ever experienced before - sweet and spicy and utterly intoxicating.

When the pudding was finally ready, we scooped it into bowls and topped it with a dollop of whipped cream. I took my first bite and was immediately transported to a world of flavor and texture that I had never known existed. The sweet and tangy fruit combined perfectly with the creamy pudding, creating a dessert that was unlike anything I had ever tasted before.

From that day on, I was hooked. I begged my relative to teach me more recipes using the lacto fruit, and she happily obliged. I learned how to make fruit tarts, fruit pies, fruit crisps - anything and everything that could be made better with the addition of this magical fruit.

As the years passed, I continued to experiment with different recipes and techniques, honing my skills and perfecting my craft. I collected recipes from friends, neighbors, and anyone else willing to share their culinary secrets with me. But it was that first recipe for fruit pudding that always held a special place in my heart.

Now, as I sit in my kitchen surrounded by the aromas of simmering spices and bubbling fruit, I can't help but feel grateful for that fateful day when my relative introduced me to the wonders of the lacto fruit. It has been a constant source of inspiration and joy in my life, and I am forever grateful for the memories and experiences it has brought me.

So, if you ever find yourself with a basket of lacto fruit and a craving for something sweet and delicious, I urge you to give this recipe a try. I promise you won't be disappointed. And who knows, maybe it will become a cherished memory for you too, just like it has for me.
