かき Fruit

 

Japanese KaKi

Noda Sensei gave me these last Friday, how does one go about eating/ cooking a fruit/ vegetable you have never heard or seen of in your life?!

She told me it was called かき (KaKi) and that sometimes it had dangerous pips.  ‘Be careful of dangerous pips, very serious!’  I nibbled away at the dried ones all day, they are quite mushy and fleshy to munch through considering they are supposed to be dried, but delicious all the same. I shamefully have not tried the others yet, I have no idea how to eat the fresh ones and have decided tonight I’ll sink my nashers into them before it’s too late.
