Starfruit is a local favorite, and is best eaten sliced. It’s unusual shape makes a beautiful addition to fruit salads and as a garnish. It’s also great in smoothies especially if you let it get a little overripe! If you have an hour or so and want to try something different with your starfruit here’s a recipe for starfruit chips. It looks like fruit candy!
We’ve been eating a lot of corn it seems like and we had some the other day that we grilled. I think that’s the best way to eat corn-especially at the beach or camping-so we are including a few novel grilled corn ideas for you here!
Grilled Corn with Cayenne, Lime, & Cotija Cotija is a Mexican cheese from Michoacan, and is very salty. You can substitute feta or parmesan for similar flavor.
New Potatoes with Mixed Herbs This recipe can use any mix of herbs, and don’t feel limited to steaming or boiling the potatoes. You can also try roasting or grilling them (whole or cut, tossed with a little olive oil) or pan fry them, cut into chunks or slices.
Crostini Mixed Herbs Great pupu idea!
