20140405-104502.jpgI like looking for interesting things to eat, so it was truly an adventure when I first purchased and tasted this type of Korean melon. Later I found a Korean Market closer to where I live, and found all kinds of Korean melons that I have never seen before. That day, I must have purchased three different kinds solely on smell. 😉

20140405-105024.jpg If you find this at a Korean or Asian market, pick one that smells fruity (ripening) and a little firm. Wash and peel the skin. Cut it in half, core the seeds out, and cut it in bite-sized morsels.

It has a honeydew taste, but a much more floral scent. I tend to eat my fruits while it is ripening so that they are not too sweet. This particular melon is crispy and sweet, but exactly not too sweet for my taste. Just perfect for me! At this point of crunchiness, it would be lovely to eat with a sliver of prosciutto for a sweet and salty snack. I believe this type of melon sweetens as it ripens.

Day 171/365: Fruit

20140402-193942.jpgI am grateful for fruit; although, I don’t eat enough, partly because I tend to gravitate to certain ones, I am not really much into sweet things, and I am limiting my sugar intake. So when my body craves fruit, I usually try to eat some.

I am also very adventurous when it comes to food, so I tend to gravitate towards unique kinds of food. I bought a very green mango which is very tart, which you eat with salty condiments. There is a yellow Korean melon that’s like a honeydew in taste. Chinese pears that are crispy and delicately sweet in taste, and starfruit, which are crisp and could be tart, and taste like granny smith apples.
