Poached Aloe Recipe
2 large aloe leaves peeled and cubed (about 1 lbs)
1 C sugar
Juice of 1 lime

Not a lot of ingredients. I recommend reading the instructions that go with it. It’s a bit complicated for those of us who don’t like to cook anything more complicated that scrambled eggs or baked potatoes. Not that I can’t also cook things that are more complicated, I just choose not to. I’m a big fan of one-pan dinners. Throw it all together and see what comes out.

But then there’s aloe.

I’m not saying it’s not delicious, I’m just saying you’d never get me to try.
