    With skin - we use them a lot in fruit salad.

    The Gujrathis call it Kamrakh. The sour variety is a relish - especially in the summer. Slice them up, mic a bit of black salt, salt and red chilli power.

    Take a slice, sip it in the salt mix ...

    ENJOY!

    I am told it originated in India.
    In the Philippines, it is called balimbing.

    If there is much green I like to ripen it a couple days at room temperature to sweeten it up.

    Then add the 'stars' to fruit salad.

    I've enjoyes shrimp empanadas with starfruit in the filling, but don't know how to make them.

    Indian bread rocks. It is absolutely delicious!. Going to beg my dh to take us to a place called Bombay Sweets tomorrow and have my fill. Their mango shakes are to die for.

    you're right spacenurse
    eat it with skin. (coz it's difficult to peel.. )
    we simply dip it in salt and enjoy the "balimbing" while we sat under our mango tree ( i missed that!)

    Jo Anne :: Mango shakes... *simpers and sobs* Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I want a mango shake too!

    Farkinott :: A Pav is a type of bun in India. Most famously used to make a "Vada-Pav" - an Indian "burger" if you like

    Used to be my staple food for years - very cheap, quite filling and tasty too
