How Many Oranges (Yes Oranges) Does it Take to Power an iPhone? (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightWondering just how many oranges it takes to power an iPhone? (I bet you weren’t.)

No matter, because you’ll still want to see this well produced and interesting short video featuring delicious Jaffa oranges as an alternative power source for one of Apple’s most popular products.

(See apples and oranges really do go together!)

Kind of takes green -er, orange energy to a whole new level don’cha think?

Enjoy!




Obviously, using 2,380 orange slices to charge an iPhone battery isn’t practical at all. Still, the video is a fun geeky way to see the scientific principal in action.

If you’re a teacher or parent who wants to try your hand at powering things using various fruits and vegetables to help make science come alive for your children (or you’re curious about the method yourself), then you won’t want to miss this helpful link.

Veggie power indeed.

Scallion Lime Shrimp Cakes Recipe (Fish For Friday Recipe)

See More Seafood and Shellfish Recipes Organized by Type of FishGreen onions (also known as scallions) and the bright flavor of lime are a magical flavor combination. When you add shrimp to the mix it’s almost impossible to go wrong.

Here’s a delicious recipe for Scallion-Lime Shrimp Cakes from the folks at My Gourmet Connection Food Blog.

The recipe calls for kaffir lime powder, a common ingredient in Thai and Asian cooking (where both the leaves and the fruit itself are used) which you can find in Asian supermarkets or some health food stores.

However, don’t despair if you can’t find kaffir limes in your area (also known as kieffer limes). The grated zest of 2 standard limes (or the zest of fresh kaffir limes) may be easily substituted instead of the kaffir lime powder.

Please see the photo below to help you identify this versatile fruit on your next culinary expedition. (As you can see, kaffir limes are quite a bit more textured and “knobbier” looking than the limes you may usually buy).

Kaffir Lime Fruit

Ingredients:

3/4 lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and finely chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons coconut milk (or heavy cream)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon kaffir lime powder (or the grated zest from two limes)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
1-2/3 cups panko crumbs
1 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
Vegetable oil for shallow frying
