It’s a rainy day. I’m starting to like those kinds of days more and more.
I wouldn’t call myself an impulse buyer–in most cases. However, when I spot some weird shaped fruit in the produce aisle, I must try it.
So…just what did I sample this week?
The most conventional fruit in the photo (the round fleshy fruit) is a cherry plum. I thought it tasted like a cross between a plum and a Mt. Rainier cherry. It was sweet, mild, and delightful.
The spiky, hairy little ball is a rambutan, which happens to mean “hairy” in Malay. I scored around the circumference of the fruit and popped it open. Voila! An edible eos lip balm. 😉 I thought it tasted like a fleshy sweet grape or a lychee. Careful, there is a pit inside this fuzzy fruit. Rambutan is high in fiber and contains phosphorus.
And finally, a fruit that looks as though it rolled out of a fairy tale picnic basket–dragon fruit. I suppose there are many ways to cut up this superfood, but I simply cut it in half and ate it with a spoon out of its ready-made bowl like ice cream. Isn’t it a beautiful fruit?! FYI, my dragon fruit was a bit tart. I might have been wise to let it ripen a couple days longer, but I couldn’t wait to try it!!!
