A Tropical Treat
🏝🌊🏝🌊🏝🌊 The fruit flesh is translucent, whitish or very pale pink, with a sweet, mildly acidic flavor. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the Lychee, Longan and Mamoncillo.
Of the estimated 25 million refugees currently displaced worldwide, nearly HALF of them are under the age of 18. Having 2 small children now, and as a child myself when I was born in a Thailand refugee camp, I wanted to create a product that was not only delicious, but also raised awareness and support for an issue that hits so close to home.

Rambutans! A new fruit I found at my local farmers market. They are similar to a lychee in texture and flavor but with a delightful and lightly sweet flavor. They do have a pit that can be eaten, but shouldn't be eaten raw. I toasted them in a pan, but I found them fairly flavorless. However, the fruits themselves were gone within the day.
We really love to feel into the vibration of the fruit. The more fruit you eat, the better you will get at picking the best fruit. Can you tell these rambutans are really, REALLY good? Rambutans is an easy one to pick - they taste as good as they look. Usually, the bigger the better, but its color that is key. They have to be entirely red (this variety, there are yellow color variations out there) Pay close attention to the hairs of the little red monsters - the hairs have to be completely red too. Yellow-green hairs indicate rambies picked unripe and those will lack sweetness, intensity of taste and what goes with it, maximum nutritional value. Black hairs will often indicate old-ish rambutans, and as with most fruit fresh is best, you dont want to eat old ones plus they ferment easily (you can tell an overripe rambutan when it squirts in your face whilst opening 😅) Buying rambutans still on branches may seem like a hassle, as you are paying for the weight of the twigs, but unless you eat them immediately, this is in your favor as rambies on branches keep fresher longer. Last but not least - whether you are buying loose rambutans or on branches, pick each fruit/branch by yourself. Dont let anyone persuade you into packing random rambutans for you ‘per kilo’ or buying them in already prepped bunches - more often then not that will mean mixing the not so ripe rambutans in, and you only want the nice red ones 👍
