My mother is all about food. Good food. We talk about food all the time. We plan ahead, but we never fit it all in by the end of the visit.
"Oh, we didn't get to have the fish tacos," she'll lament the night before I'm leaving.
Nellie has a star fruit tree, but she doesn't care for star fruit. She gives my parents all they want. Star fruit really doesn't have much taste (kind of a mild melon flavor), but it's so pretty to look at when it's sliced.
And apparently it's loaded with Vitamin C and antioxidants.
Plantains, Pineapple and Star Fruit
pineapple juice or orange juice
Peel and slice plantains about 1/4 inch thick. Trim or peel star fruit and slice crossways. Saute plantains and star fruit in about two tablespoons of butter.
