Welcome to my blog! I'm a 31 year old trying to survive our recent move to the suburbs. My current projects in life are settling into our new house, pampering the dog, and learning how to take care of our new baby.
Have you ever had a pomelo before? It's a large citrus fruit, a even bigger than a grapefruit. I saw this mother at the grocery store and I just wanted to try it. I had no idea how to choose a good one, so I squeezed them all and shook them like I had any idea what I was doing and picked this one.
There is actually a lot less fruit inside than I thought, that fleshy white part took up most of the actual fruit. It was soft and spongey and very easy to cut away. I think the key is just to use a very sharp knife.
I had no idea how to cut this thing open, so I just kind of cut it up like an orange. After like 20 minutes of slicing and dicing, I took my first bite. If the camera was able to catch that first reaction, I don't think anyone would eat this fruit. I like most fruits and vegetables, I'd say about 95% of the ones that come across my path but this was far too tartly bitter for me and it had a really strange after taste. I literally couldn't even eat more than one slice of this and I had to throw the rest away...it was a waste, but that's how much I really couldn't even stand it. However, it was a good experience to try something new on a whim and it can't always work out for the best!
