I'm no adrenaline junkie, as you can tell by my previous post. But I do enjoy a mind-stumping culinary challenge like Food Network's Chopped or Sweet Genius more often than not.
Which is why you can find me poking around the local international farmer's market as giddy as a girl on a field trip. What a wonderland! The sheer variety of choy alone boggles the mind!
(I like to snap stealthy photos of packages of frozen bull's testicles, frozen sheep's heads and whole frozen goats in muslin bags, then send them to my friend from my Blackberry.)
Today I brought home a dragon fruit, aptly named, as you can see. I just wanted to share in case you've ever been curious. This tastes nothing like the dragon fruit flavored Vitamin Water, which tastes to me like watered-down Kool-Aid. This had the grainy texture of watermelon and a sweet-tart flavor faintly reminiscent of pomegranate, but I have to tell you, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
Maybe mine wasn't sweet enough? I'm funny about textures, and this one was kind of freaking me out, man...! But isn't it pretty? While searching for YouTube videos on how to eat a dragon fruit, I did come across footage on people eating the world's stinkiest fruit--the infamous durian--for the first time, but the way it was described, well...there's no chance I'll be blogging about my adventures with that, so don't go getting any ideas. But I have been eyeballing the kimchi selection...
