A star is born…and eaten!

This is, believe it or not, the first time I bought and ate a Starfruit! Here he shines in my crudite’ with guacamole. Sounds odd but I’ll eat anything with guacamole.

I used the rest of him in an eggplant stew to add a bit of tart sweetness to the pot. Very good. That is a dragon fruit underneath of him.  I wasn’t impressed by the dragon fruit as much as my fiancée was. I like the beautiful color of it but not much in the flavor department in my opinion.

Yum Food!! Yum Art!!

  1. One of the joys of living in Florida is the abundance of fruit. Love star fruit, never had Dragon fruit. I like the way it looks though!
