I was approached by a woman today at the grocery store while examining a foreign fruit I had never seen before. She told me it was a carambola (star fruit) and told me about it and how to cut it up. She said it tasted like a pear. One of the employees came over and cut me up a piece to try. It tasted like sweet, bitter perfume and soap. The guy laughed. He told me they were too ripe to eat.
I love going to the grocery store. I love the fresh produce section and I'm always interested to try new types of foods. I will remind myself next time to get one of those carambolas!
