Beautiful stars

I remember first tasting star fruit as a kid when my aunt returned from living in Africa for a few years. We went to the grocery store and she made showed me all of the things she ate in Africa. How fortunate we are in the US to have access to all sorts of fruits and vegetables from around the world! And year round at that!

I remember loving it or at least the star shape so I was eager to try it here. I purchased one from the market, sliced it open, and I was disappointed… It had the texture of an apple (my favorite fruit) but was like a watery celery-apple with a slight bitter citrus taste. It was quite strange.
