-I love new experiences, and often try new foods. I don't always try the food a second time.
Raw squid, for example, tastes fine, but the texture was not one I enjoyed.
Hamachi sashimi (young yellowtail tuna served raw) is a favorite though... almost buttery. The not-knowing is very much a part of the adventure, and part of the thrill.
-Our favorite local market, Hillers, carries rare and unusual items, so I often buy something there to try at home. This week I couldn't resist the Dragon Fruit, it was so gorgeous!
Lynn said the one I chose looks like a fish, and I have to agree with her! The bright green leaves do resemble fins.
The inside was quite a surprise! It would make a wonderful addition to a Truman Capote-style Black and White Dinner, wedges of fruit served as a simple dessert, or just a palate-cleanser.
The flesh just under the bright fuchsia skin tastes much like kiwi, the center is much sweeter, with a hint of papaya and a smidgeon of berry, almost a creaminess to the taste. I will definitely be buying it again, it made a wonderful snack.
