Having taken up kitchen gardening seriously, one of the best things that has happened to me is the connectivity with fellow organic gardeners. The Organic Terrace Gardening group of FB has not only been a source of learning and inspiration, but we have the pleasure of sharing our organic produce with one another. One kind member of the group shared sackful of sweet starfruit with me. There are two kinds of starfruit. The ones we usually get at the store are tart, but these were really sweet and you can just sink your teeth into them. The tart ones are a favourite with my daughter, but these being sweet, we all enjoyed them to the fullest. There was plenty to share with friends and relatives. I prepared 4 bottles of jam and 2 jars of wine.
You can find the recipe for Starfruit Carrot salad here.
Many of my friends said they were eating the fruit for the first time. What about you? Do you enjoy starfruit?
