Two new additions to the fruit household

Introducing 2 new fruits to the FB household to try out.

The Rambutan

I LOVE Rambutan. And finding them fresh here in Montreal is a treat. Their litchi’s (lychees) or their other exotic fruits always look so sad, grey and disgusting.

These were the only 3 out of the bunch that passed my test. I also have to mention they cost $2.33 for 3 of them. Ouch!!! Well, once in a while they say.

They’re not painful to touch by the way, even though they look like little porcupines. They’re furry and very cute… They look good right now. And to eat them, just split it open and eat the inside. Easy peasy!

The Tomatillo

I’ve never had this before. I am trying it out as an addition to my Thai Red Curry Chicken I am making tomorrow.

A tart flavour should be quite nice with a Thai Red Curry since I was going to use a bit of lime juice on the side anyway.

Tomatillos, referred to as green tomato (Spanish: tomate verde) in Mexico, are a staple in Mexican cuisine.

The freshness and greenness of the husk are quality criteria. Fruit should be firm and bright green, as the green colour and tart flavour are the main culinary contributions of the fruit.
