Over the weekend, we discovered a new weird thing to eat, Rambutan. It’s a spiky-looking round, reddish colored fruit. Easy to peel and very tasty. It has the texture of a grape, maybe closer to a kiwi fruit as one caller suggested.  There’s a little chewiness and the taste is a mild sweet.

Of course, right away we thought that Eric Scott could figure out a way to use the fruit in a delicious fall cocktail. Have you ever cooked with or used this fruit for a drink? Let me know through our free App and I’ll be happy to share some of your ideas on the air!
