:) WHAT in the WORLD is this you ask????? I am calling it a Wookie Fruit.....discovered at Publix in the organic fruit section! There was quite an interest in the small crate of these weird looking little guys!! Just HAD to buy a couple to see what it tastes like......after all.....at my age (Which I am NOT stating thank you very much).....there just aren't too many "new" things left to experience!!
I had been warned by Mr. Produce Man that it looked like a fish eye when you cut into it and to not be too grossed out..and to be careful when peeling as the insides sort of "pop out"...and he was right. When cutting through the center it DID look like a fish eye!! I took the other Wookie Fruit to Jasper for Princess Cupcake to see and taste....she wasn't too sure at first!
We cut the end off, then the thick, prickly outer skin peels off easy...the fruit almost "pops" out!! Contains a teeny tiny seed that is hard like a peach pit. The fruit...what fruit there is....(about the size of a large grape) has a weird rubbery texture but very easy to chew!! Tastes SWEET, not not like any sweet you have tasted before......unfortunately it would take about 3 doz. to get a small bowl......this is one of those things that is fun to try but not something you would add to your regular diet!
Finished my second "adult" size pair of socks!! Still have a few issues where the stitches aren't joined QUITE tight enought at certain points. But still better each time I make a pair so I'm just darning as I go!! LOL!!! I am going to start my next pair for Princess Cupcake!!
Not the best picture.......but I made this baby cap this weekend for a cousin's baby that is due in September, also making 2 of the M/D baby bibs, and the M/D Kimona. LOVE making the little caps!! Made from Cotonade, 100% cotton yarn...so soft!!
