I was in Meijer the other day using a $20. gift certificate I received from my job for earning the title employee of the month. I am honored and truly humbled and appreciative; also the money was burning a hole in my pocket. :-)
I came across this fruit, called Sharon in the exotic fruit section. They were next to the persimmon and both were priced at two for a $1.00 so I selected one of each and took them home to share with hubby. Before eating this fruit, which looks like an orange tomato, I looked it up online. The fruit felt firm and the skin is thicker than a tomato. I was bursting with curiosity, but first I wanted to know more. Last year when I brought home taro root I learned that it should not be eaten raw and can in fact be toxic if not cooked so after learning that I have learned to be cautious. If you want to know what I learned about sharon fruit you can read here. We tried persimmon for the first time last year, and often I bring home something new and we try it, after researching first. Some I now buy every time they are on sale, like pummelo. We love this one! BTW, I have articles linked to each, if you are curious.
Do you try new foods when you get a chance?
What foods have you tried that you really like or really don't like? I tried the star fruit a few years ago and got a terrible stomach ache. I don't want to see one now. :-)
