Ok, here’s the latest installment of “What is it and would you eat it??” Also, “what do you do with it once you’ve figured out what it is??”
This week’s food is a little smaller than a clementine (or about the size of a squash ball for my sports fans).
It looks like a giant cousin to the puff balls we all found in the woods as kids.
It has a brown/greenish skin/shell which is VERY tough and must be cut carefully with a very sharp knife.
Inside the skin/shell is a layer of white pith.
Inside the pith layer is a yellow slimy center that looks like raw egg yolk.
Mixed in with the ‘egg yolk’ are clear/green seeds that look sort of like fish eggs and are about the size of a pomegranate seed and are crunchy in the same way too.
I have actually eaten this so I can tell you that it sort of tastes like a sour patch kid, except crunchy.
Scoop out the whole center and enjoy, right??
What do you think?
