When I started this latest birthday project, I knew that a big part of making it successful would be sharing my experiences with friends and family. So I chose a day when Trevor was at school and Steve was away on a business trip and invited my coworkers from back in my teaching days to join me in trying 7 new-to-me foods. It was the same group of friends (minus two) who joined me to try Miracle Berries as part of my 40th birthday celebration.
The first new-to-me food we tried was mamey sapote. I found it at the same Asian market where I discovered the galangal.
It smelled nice, subtle but fruity, and it was such a pretty shade of peachy orange. The taste was very hard to describe. Mild, vaguely fruity, and a bit squash-like. But the most notable thing about it was the strange mouth feel, which one friend described as 'cottony.' I didn't have as negative a reaction to it as a few of the others did. I gave it a 5. The others graded it 5, 1, 3 and 3.

Interesting! I spy a starfruit... Another one of your new-to-you foods?! I love those!!! :)ReplyDelete
No, I'd had starfruit before many times. (Yum!) But one of my friends hadn't and brought it along in case it was new to me also.Delete
Hmmmm...interesting. I haven't tried it before.ReplyDelete
You are a very brave woman, Cindy! I don't know if I would have wanted to try this - just the texture alone may have stopped me!ReplyDelete
