It's starfruit season once again. I admit I'm not an avid star fruit user. I suppose that's because I haven't come upon good ways to use them. For right now, I eat them raw......a little diced up in salads, plus I'll add a fruit to smoothies (my smoothies tend to be chunkies.)
Star fruit are so plentiful that I wish I had some ideas on how to use them more. Hubby and I don't do desserts, so that's out.
If any of you out there have starfruit recipes, other than desserts, I'd love to hear from ya.
Starfruit is a pretty cool looking fruit. Whole, it's odd looking. Sliced across, it really does look like a star.
I've noticed that there is often only one seed per fruit. Occasionally more but not many. Such a good sized fruit, you'd think there would be more. The seed is small and inconspicuous, found in a tubelike membrane that runs lengthwise in the fruit. I've collected a number of these seeds and used them to start new trees.
In the above photo you can see where I sliced through the one and only seed in that fruit. I did that on purpose so you could see it. And I placed another fresh seed on the side for your viewing. A fairly small seed for a fruit that can be twice the size of a fist.
