new fruit

Had my first star fruit just now. Tasted weird at first, felt tastier by the end. Either getting used to it or getting to parts less past their use-by date, since I'd let it brown a bit.

Also having jackfruit chips from TJ. Tastes like banana chips, or like the rice bran oil used for both. Not that I've had raw rice bran oil, but there's a lot more fat on the panel than there is in the raw jackfruit nutrition panel.

Hmm, I guess it does taste fruity and somewhat different from banana.

Interesting, I've tried star fruit twice and gave up on it as bland and only mildly sweet, but the examples I had were sufficiently firm that I suspect they weren't ripe. The challenge would then be finding ripe star fruit to try.

I've had canned jackfruit in fruit salads at several Thai restaurants, and if I'm remembering which completely unfamiliar fruit is which, it was tasty, but had a texture oddly like cloth (soggy cloth, which was in no way hard to chew). Strangly, this wasn't a negative thing at all, just drastically unexpected.

I've had star fruit as well and found the taste uninspiring. It's pretty, though, and therefore suitable for display and fruit trays.
