I was pleasantly surprised by the nice flavor of these onion like vegetables. I kinda took to the nickname Devil Onions because I had to peel several pounds at school and they can sometimes me more powerful than onions.
I didn’t think I liked figs and so when they were brought to school for us to try, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a sweet flavor and a funny texture that I cannot really describe. The ones I bought were less sweet, but the flavor was still good.
I had this at school for the first time a few weeks back. It has a very green/earthy taste with texture between a crisp apple and a raw potato. I would eat it again and would even try cooking with it somehow. I liked it thinly sliced into strips.
Well, for not like pears, this was delicious. It tasted like a super sweet pear. Anyone know what it’s like finding a ripe pear? For me, it’s always super crunchy like an apple or soggy and over-ripe. This pear was the perfect ripeness!
My goal for this school year, is to try a new ingredient each week. This week, I picked up a Dragon Fruit from Winco for just over a dollar.
The vibrant color and unusual shape made me want to try it, even though I had no idea how to eat it (that’s when Youtube comes in handy) The outside texture feels like a mango (minus the weird leaves).
I was shocked to see how white it was inside! The texture is a lot like a kiwi with the black little seeds. Different varieties have different colored insides.
This is the fruit chopped up. It was really easy to scoop out with a spoon. It was really mild tasting, kinda like a watery kiwi (ish). It’s kinda a familiar taste but we couldn’t quite place it.
