JFF’s 33rd anniversary celebration!!!

JFF has turned 33 years old yesterday, on 29th October!! It’s incredible to see the growth of this farm in the last decade, attracting countless Singaporeans and also overseas visitors! JFF has come a very long way, having shifted from Old Jurong Road to Lim Chu Kang  in 1994, and also opening up to the public from being a private farm since the early 1990s! That’s amazing! To be honest, I didn’t know about JFF until I was assigned to come here for my internship. When I was first brought here by my facilitator, I didn’t expect it to be such a quaint and tranquil place. I was expected it to be quite noisy with frogs croaking every where!

To celebrate our 33rd birthday, we’re going to have a few activities and bundle deals at our farm on the weekend of our anniversary week, on the 1st & 2nd November.
1. With every entry into the tadpoles’ pen (30 mins/ $6), you may choose from our beautiful royal headband to take home as a keepsake!
2. Next, Frogician and I will do face painting for both children and adults. You get to choose from the many designs you will like on your face!
3. Only for this Sunday, we will have our barbecued exotic range of meat for sale too. Our BBQ skewers have proven to be very popular during the Farmers’ Market, so we’re bringing it back again on this very special occasion. Be sure not to miss it this time if you didn’t manage to catch us during Farmers’ Market!

Note that JFF opens from 9am – 5.30pm, to the general public only on weekends and public holidays and from Tuesday – Friday to appointment bookings and tour reservations only. Come down to the farm this weekend to celebrate JFF’s 33rd birthday with us!! Hope to see all of you!! 🙂

Frog Meat steamed in Bullfrog Essence with Ginseng and Cordyceps

Recipe:

  1. Chop fresh whole frog into smaller pieces.
  2. Add a generous dollop of minced garlic and ginger on the meat
  3. Steam for about 10 mins.
  4. Add coriander, chili slices and warmed frog essence or chicken essence last.
  5. Serve warm!

Many people grouse over the cooking methods of frog meat. The enlightened ones would have already found out that frog meat when cook fresh does not even need to go with any condiments. The simplest method of cooking YET possibly the best way of savoring fresh frog meat, would be by steaming.. Or when steamed over more then 3-4 hours, the culinary people termed it as double-boiling.

About 10 days after I was back from India, I developed a bad rash all over my right leg. That patchy redness, saddled with itchiness started spreading across to my left and it wasn’t long before the skin on my arms started to feel rawness and of course that uncontrollable itch. My mum suggested very convincingly that it must have been the trip to India. The over dosage on Curry and rice. Lol..

The typical me who doesn’t believe in popping pills actually went to the doctor on the 2nd day of the breakout! The doctor diagnosed it as Eczema. What a dramatic irony! As a tour guide for our food trail and also as a salesgirl at the Frog Shop, time and again I would educate my customers on how frog meat is excellent for its detoxifying qualities and especially suitable for people with ECZEMA and who are recovering from illnesses. I was in absolute disbelief. How could I have triggered off eczema when obviously I have eaten much more frogs then anyone would ever have!

 It goes without saying that my mum double boiled frog meat with bitter gourd on the night when the red patches and itchiness started. And I had that concoction over 3 days. By the end of the third day, the marks of the patchiness were gone! Life was back to normal.

C2 and I decided that we will start selling “Frog Meat Steamed in Bullfrog Essence with Ginseng and Cordyceps” at the farm after a group of men who had tried this dish were so full of praises for it. Looks like they will be back and we better be prepared for them!
