Hello there! I'm a cute little fella... don't you think so? Well, it can be a nice hat or a new hairdo... But I'm calling it rambutan. My hair may be long and ... very funky.
Inside the rambutan - the flesh looks like lychee or longan. White, soft, very juicy, and very sweet. Mmmph! Delicious desserts or even on its own... In countries where its not origin, it's one of those exotic fruits that costs a lot to buy!
These rambutans are from my parent's garden. It's been there way before I was born, and I'm 30 this year! Very old tree, but still surviving the test of time. I know I'm supposed to wait till the fruit turns totally red, but I just couln't wait to eat them... so I told dad to pick some for me! Thats why you see the greenish hairs... :-P
I love rambutans. They're good to make desserts like jellies, pudding, or... as coctail drinks... Anyone has any recipes calling for rambutan in this peak season of Malaysian local fruits??? :-)
