Meet the Ugli.
Recently, I have started a little “game” that I play when I go grocery shopping. I am required to return with a fruit or vegetable that I have not tried before. Then, I take it home, look up what the hell I should be doing with it, and try it out for myself.
Ihave read that our openness to try new foods shuts off around the age of 39 years old, and although I still have a quite bit time until I reach that age, I want to use this willingness to it’s greatest capacity.
My first experience in this new adventure was with: The Ugli Fruit
Although unattractive, this exotic Jamaican fruit was DELICIOUS. It’s easy to peel and eats like an orange. The taste reminded me of a tangerine, grapefruit, and lemon hybrid but with a very low acidity and mild tartness. The white membrane was a bit chewier then I would have expected, but I actually preferred it over the membrane of an orange or a grapefruit. My favorite part about ugli fruit though is how amazingly juicy it is! I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable this fruit was & I will be buying it again.
Have you tried ugli fruit before?
