  1. I do like this post – thanks! I wondered what that fruit was and now know it’s a jackfruit. I enjoy trying new things as well. I just tried broccoli rappini for the first time and sauted it with garlic, I didn’t care for it – it was too bitter for me. … hey but at least we try new things! 🙂

    • ooh Im sorry to hear about your experience with broccoli rappini, I havent tried it yet. is it like kale? bitter like that? I wonder if it tastes better raw. Love trying new things even when it turns out bad! LOL
      Thanks for posting and glad you liked mine.

      • Hey there … no, it’s not at all like Kale … actually I love Kale! Not sure how to describe it .. but just bitter lol … maybe it would be good mixed with something to disguise the taste! I have a little left and I think it may be going into the disposal as much as I dislike wasting food!

      • yes I have come to love kale as well – but the first time I tried it I couldnt understand why everyone loved it so much. but then I tried the baby kale and it was sweeter. I didnt know you had to take out the center or it was bitter. Now I know! LOL . hmm now I am going to have to try broccoli rappini just to see what its like. what about juicing it with apples? think the apple could cover the nasty?

  2. Great post today. I really enjoyed it very much.
