one of the great things about living in thailand is all the rare and exotic tropical fruit. it’s everywhere. mangos, mangosteen, papaya, guava, longkong, pomelo, litchi, pineapple, coconut, durian, jack fruit, marian plum, etc… lately, we’ve taken a liking to the rambutan. it took us a bit to get past it’s fraggle rock appearance. cuz normally, food + hair = bad thing. but this one is quite tasty.
yep, inside that hairy exterior is this smooth, almost grape like, tasty piece of goodness.
here’s what’s left after you devour the fruit.
those of you who know me know i’m not a play with your food kind of mom, but this one, well, who could help it.
looks like a nasty road rash, doesn’t it?
and for anyone who might be wondering… we’ve eaten no durian. it’s not in season now. and for that i thank God. cuz that fruit stinks. big time. smells alot like something i could never and would never put in my mouth.
