I don't expect them to carry the exotic fruits year round, and I live in a small city that isn't exactly open to new foods, but it's disappointing nevertheless when they carry starfruit for a few years and then stop. Lychees and sprite melons only appeared for a single year so I suppose if I want to find them I'll need to drive to a bigger city a few hours away. It seems like such a tease!
It's also one of the reasons I subscribe to meal kits, it's sometimes the easiest way I can get some of those more unusual items that aren't available locally.

At a restaurant recently In tried thick cut slab bacon that had a rub on it of cocoa, espresso and some other flavors, it was served at the table and it looked like a big brownie, until the waiter shredded it with two forks. Melt in your mouth heaven!

Just looking at pale, soggy-looking Chinese dumplings makes them unappetizing to me. But went to dinner with some other people and they ordered some with shrimp and they were pretty good. Choice of steamed or fried and they ordered them fried. Soft/soggy, but the flavor was good. I would eat them again. Maybe potstickers are more crisp?

I've had plenty of brie, but never with the inclusion of wild mushrooms.
Oh that sounds wonderful.

Did yuo mix them together and bake or cook the wild mushrooms and put on top and bake?

Baked pears.

Cut in half. Scoop out seeds with a melon baller. Put cut side down on parchment paper in 350 oven until soft.

Turn over and fill scooped out section with marscapone cheese.

You can drizzle with hot honey, but not necessary. Or lightly dust with cardamon powder. Also not necessary.

These are heavenly.

I roasted them in the basket for my Weber charcoal grill rotisserie, using pecan 1/2 splits for fire.
Peel and freeze in strips and pull out a few strips whenever you want.

I made green corn tamales with Hatch chili strips and poblano chili strips that had been frozen.

Quiet tasty.

I'm new here...just happened upon this thread. You know what would be fun....for everyone to make it a point to try something new at least once a month and come back with a report on it!

I like to cook so I'm always looking at recipes. Today you got me interested in hatch chilies, which I haven't tried, but now will get some!

It was along with the rest of the entire meal.
