One more reason to visit Japan at some point!
There's a Japanese grocery chain called Mitsuwa that's in a few cities that I'm fairly certain carries this "fruit" (in quotes because it really isn't eaten like a fruit!).
This was inspiring. I wish I read this before I went to the grocery store today. I’ve been eating such plain food these last few months. Good food writing always makes me want to be a little bit more adventurous in the kitchen.
Can’t wait to try a little in a gin and tonic!
Jeff Kready said it but I have to say it again “wonderment paralysis”
OMG, I almost wrote the word captivating and then saw it already used by Jeff - hilarious - but true! I was riveted by this article and I am in no way a “foodie.” And I would love to try this. I wish I could be more inventive in my cooking, even with just fresh herbs - but that ship has sailed. Or has it? I would need a seriously easy, simple cookbook to give me ideas. I love all things vegetables - any suggestions? Nothing rare or difficult - simple.
Captivating! I really want to try this fruit and I'm glad the author was able to make some progress on her wonderment paralysis. A fantastic name for a very real problem.
I had no idea the fresh fruit was so rare! Definitely going to be on the lookout now.
