saturday at the market

3 pounds beans
purple, red, and green peppers
dried jamaica flowers 
$10 US

So, what the heck is a pitajaya? (pronounce it peet-a-hi-ya)  It's that weird pink fruit behind the beans in the picture.

This also is called the dragon fruit, and comes in a yellow version too.  But I like the pink, because this is what it looks like when you cut it up:

You peel the skin off like a banana, then eat the inside, seeds and all.  It is sweet and mild- kind of like a blueberry, only slightly slimy.   The yellow version has white insides.....not nearly as interesting.  I'm planning on blending it up with some orange juice and freezing it into popsicles- yum!

  1. So pretty! I love it! I don't think I could even find something like that over here, but now that I know, if I see it at Wegman's, I'll pick it up.
