Fruit Tip of the Day
In America, we tend to think that we know every kind of fruit. Apples, bananas, grapes, oranges, and if you want to get exotic, mangoes, papayas, passion fruit, etc. But, when you visit a foreign country, you'll be shocked and amazed that there are many more fruits and veggies that somehow you've NEVER seen! One such fruit is known in the DR as a limoncio. It's a lime-sized green fruit on a stick that requires breaking its skin, which causes the fruit to pop out. you then eat a slimy Starburst-flavored fruit off of a large pit. The kids called these things "snot rockets" and for good reason, but they did taste good! Another vegetable was a root known a yucca. When deep fried, these things were better than french fries! So, at Kroger, if you see an odd fruit or vegetable, give 'er a try!
