How Google Made Me a Snack

Have you been standing in the produce section and thought “Hmmm…I wonder what that tastes like”? I found myself there earlier this week and answered myself with “Why the hell don’t I find out?!”. The produce enigma that captured my attention this time was a Star Fruit. If you’ve had one, save me the embarrassment and don’t read any more of this post. It’s funny how someone who tackled 3 young Thai coconuts (youtube was the savior here) can be…not scared, but unsure of, such a little thing as the Star Fruit. And at $4 I figured I better not mess this up. So what do I do when in doubt? Google it. Google has made me dinner, taught my spouse how to fix an Xbox, and has bought me evening gowns. If Google dies, I die. I digress. I googled “how to eat a star fruit” and discovered the 5 page blog on how to do such a thing. COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS. Let me save you the trouble. Trim the 5 edges and slice/eat/julienne/chop (you get the point) the fruit. DONE. Seriously? A 5 page blog http://thaifood.about.com/od/introtothaicooking/ss/starfruithowto.htm.
So go out there and pick up a kumquat, lychee, dragon fruit or star fruit for yourself and enjoy.

*Disclaimer-Although I am aware that non-domestic (ie foreign) produce isn’t really sustainable, I want to know what to eat before I go to Thailand someday. Although perhaps that’s a bad example, thanks a lot Brokedown Palace.
