welcome to another findin’ friday.  and this week we discover another cactus fruit.  K isn’t so enamoured with this one; I love it, seeds & all: kind of like strawberry & melon and…?  I find sub-tropical and tropical fruit flavour profiles are often so complex.  I cut it up (carefully!  I’ve been nailed by the infinitesimal glochids) and just add it to my fruit salad.  I’m tempted to try a secondary water kefir ferment with the juice, but I just eat whatever I can get so fast that I’ve not even tried juicing them!
