Pummelos are good. The rind is really, really thick, and there is a lot of the white gunk from the peel that you have to strip off even after you peel it. (Man, I really should be a food writer.) The actual fruit meat (yes, that is right, the meat of the fruit is the part you eat), was a really pretty pink, so I took a picture.
This picture makes these pummello sections look kind of like a heart? (Maybe too much Grey's Anatomy this weekend.)
Unlike an orange or tangerine, you don't eat any of the "membrane" so when you are done, you are stuck with a huge pile of pummello trash, and you get kind of messy, so I wouldn't recommend as a fruit for the lunch box, especially if you use lunch to catch up on blog reading (which is what I read was the time for highest blog traffic)...but a fruit to eat while watching television...absolutely.
Oh yeah, what does it taste like? Grapefruit, only not as intense.
While we are on the topic of food, what is going to be on your Thanksgiving table? I am working on my menu. So far I have the basics, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos, gravy, rolls, corn, green beans, and my twists for this year: pumpkin/gingerbread trifle, pumpkin cheesecake, and homemade cranberry dipping sauce and cranberry jelly. The kid in college asked for a casserole of some sort, preferably including sour cream and/or cream cheese...any ideas?
And one more thing...tomorrow is BlogSecret. The post on this blog will not be mine, mine is going to be on...oh wait. It's a secret!
