I only have a few days left on my Costa Rica Journey and I want to make the most of them. Food is definitely part of a culture and while in the tropics, you must eat the fruit! I have eaten a ridiculous amount of pineapple, papaya, banana, and mango while I was here; however, there were still a ton of mysterious fruits lurking in the markets for us to try… and try we did! Jason and I went to the local fruit market and bought about a dozen strange fruits for our group of friends. I’ll admit… they were not all delicious. But I did find a few that I loved!
Zapote – delicious! Mamon – yum! Cas – bitter and horrible
Mangosteen – there are no words Passion Fruit – wonderful Jacote – the worst one…so bitter
Dragon Fruit – bland Guanabana – strange texture, but yummy Anon – not good or bad
Carambola – tart Loquat – not my cup of tea
My Ukrainian friend, Pavel, also taught me how to make Piroshki, a typical Ukrainian bread filled with mashed potatoes and then fried. It was a wonderful meal!
