Foraged local passion fruit
tiny, yellow, ripe and delicious
Paul came home with a pocket full of these wee babes! Tiny passion fruit but still so full of fruit and so ?tasty.
I’ve found no matter what size we pick these ( from teeny to giant) they all have ripe fruit inside and the larger they get the more pith you get, so you don’t gain that much extra fruit.
Yes, it’s a thing. And now we’ve started, we’re on the lookout for more – we just got a few limes and a lovely guava to try. But be careful where you pick from, and be prepared to be able to pick and carry things home. I once meat a girl that foraged prickly pears without realising what they were … eek !!! We’ll write more about this but for now, we’ve found this really expert article on mashable for you on how to begin.
Foraged foods we´ve come across
I´m going to save the links I find here, for me, and for you, so we can share this foraging love ! I´m not an expert but like most people, it´s never too late to learn.
