sausage, and carambola (star fruit)
SAM_1436

They are so pretty – when you slice them, they look like stars. It inspires me to make a fruit salad and some carambola infused water!

Wikipedia says: Carambola is native to the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The fruit is popular throughout Southeast Asia, the South Pacific and parts of East Asia. The tree is also cultivated throughout non-indigenous tropical areas, such as in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the southern United States.

The fruit has distinctive ridges running down its sides (usually five, but can sometimes vary); in cross-section, it resembles a star, hence its name. The entire fruit is edible and is usually eaten out of hand. They may also be used in cooking, and can be made into relishes, preserves, and juice drinks.

I’ll be looking around for unique uses since they are in season here right now.
