The Daily Post photo Challenge : Spare

Spare has many connotations: it can mean one too many, or sparse, or even to release something from harm. I’m looking forward to seeing your interpretations! Bonus points to those who tell the story behind their “spare” inspiration.

Spare also means Surplus

The jackfruit season has started in our place. We use them not only as fruits but also as vegetables. When they are small we use them to prepare many dishes. From raw jackfruit  papads, chips  are made. They are very popular. Once they are ripe, they are good to eat. But not all are sweet.But the problem sometimes is that they are so big, too big for a small family.

  1. We have a spare video recorder. It was still in the plastic wrapping and cost us just £20 brand new in a pawn shop. The only problem is that the latest televisions can’t show VHS films from it. Just DVDs now. So perhaps “spare” means “will probably never be used”.

    1. Very true 🙂 Earlier so many things could be repaired but now they have to be disposed off. There are no spare parts. It is fascinating to read the number of meanings any word can have. That is why I like the prompts and other challenges. Regards, Lakshmi Bhat

    1. As in most fruits some are sweet and some are not. But when we cut them there is a lot of white gum like substance, it is sticky. After cutting we have to apply oil to our hands to remove the stickiness:) Jackfruits are seasonal, usually from March to about August. When they are small and not ripe we use them as vegetables.
