i had planned on getting a super duper yummy sandwich from Swiss to Go, an amazing sandwich place & she makes the best pretzel buns! However! when i got there she was out of bread!!! so, no sandwich for me, boo! (i am hoping to go again tomorrow!) She did have some tasty looking pastries left & i thought i would give one a try! I ended up deciding to get one made with Sea Buckthorn berries!
they are little yellowish orange berries that have a little seed in them. They were actually pretty sour on their own but along with the cream & pastry it was really quite tasty! The tart actually had quite a few of them on top and under the cream, so i got a pretty good taste of them. ...so, no sandwich, but new fruit experience! (plus she gave me the tart for free!)
Other new fruit i have had in the not so distant past:
Apriums! -- these are a cross between apricots and plums & apparently quite common, like pluots, but i have never seen them before. They were dark purple-ish red-ish kinda plum like colour on the surface but also fuzzy like an apricot! Inside they looked like this:
they were SO red! and SO JUICY! they were just dripping when i cut them open, even though the whole fruit was still quite firm. & they were quite sweet! very tasty! I will get them again for sure if i see them. (well, and if they are not $2.48/lb, that is kinda a ridiculous price, but i wanted to try them!)
what a pretty looking fruit! it is a little melon, fits i the palm of your hand. The inside is white flesh that to me tasted kinda like a cross between a honey dew and a cucumber. i am afraid that the one i got was a little under ripe. i should have let it ripen a bit & i think it would have tasted sweeter. apparently you can eat the seeds too, or so says the internet, but i did not, i am not a big seed eater. i think i read that you could eat the peel as well? i did not do that either, but the peel is very thin, unlike say a cantaloupe or honeydew that has more of a rind. i think i might try one again to taste it when it is fully ripened, i like the idea of a personal sized melon!
