Every Saturday morning—the farmer’s market is such a treat for me. I look for unusual fruits, vegetables, items, whatever strikes my fancy. Today a found a beaded jewelry box and couldn’t resist. Took it home along some rambutan fruit—rich in Fat, Calcium, Iron, Protein, Nitrogen, Ash, Sodium, Zinc, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Phosphorus, pH, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Fiber. I am told by the vendor that eating five fruit in a day can seriously decrease the chance of cancer. Rambutan fruit is also very effective in lowering blood pressure.
How to Eat Rambutan Fruit:
Open Rambutan fruit by removing one part of its skin. Find the seam across the fruit and pull apart the leathery skin. I use a pair of kitchen shears, but be careful, only cut through the skin. Then you can hold the fruit with your fingers and enjoy the sweet taste. Rambutan fruit cannot be cooked; it should be eaten raw only.
