Rambutan & Dragon Fruit

When my mother was here, we made our customary visit to Jungle Jim's. Mostly we bought items that you might have heard of before, but we did buy a rambutan and a dragon fruit. If you've ever had longan or lychee, rambutan is kind of like that. It's a lovely fruit and really tasty.

Use a knife to slice a cap off and then peel the rest

You end up with this!  It's tastier than it looks.

Be careful not to eat the seed!

The dragon fruit is also a lovely fruit, but not nearly as tasty as it looks. It doesn't taste just doesn't taste like much of anything at all. It's like a very bland kiwi.

Cut it in half and then slice the fruit into cubes, keeping the skins as a bowl

Isn't it lovely? Totally tasteless.  It could add some visual interest to a fruit salad though
