Re: Spring, first of two, pomelo

Jim: I'm sorry to hear about your star fruit...hope whatever you do to
it helps...what are minors? Minor minerals? Thanks to you and Judy re:
the info. on pomelo's...will follow your guys' instructions and see how
it goes over with the kids. I've never been fond of grapefruit but
hopefully, it's not quite the same taste...so I guess we'll see how it
goes over with me, too. The husband will practically eat anything, so
I'm sure he'll like it.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Spring, first of two, pomelo

There seems to be two or three ways to spell it.<br><br>I've seen some
very large ones at the farmers' market fetch up to $3.50 <br>each. Some
believe that the pomelo is one of the parents of the <br>grapefruit.
Judy's right. The best way to eat them is to peel and <br>remove the
membranes that encase the segments. They are quite good, but <br>a bit
seedy.<br><br>I have heard that they have become an important part of
Thai wedding <br>banquets. Don't know if that's true or not. I've also
heard that the <br>rind is used as a condiment--chopped and marinated in
soy sauce.<br><br>Melody, for some reason my star fruit has quit
producing. I'm going to <br>give it a jolt of fertilizer and minors
[especially] this weekend and <br>see if I can jump-start
it.<br><br><br>On Wednesday, March 3, 2004, at 01:39 AM, Judy L Browning
