At my Weight Watchers meeting, our leader gave us a challenge to try new fruits and vegetables this week.
So I was thrilled when my sister, Patty, came home with some golden raspberries.
I had never had them before. I have seen them but never gave them a try.
Have you ever had them? If not, let me tell you, you should! They are so sweet and have a more mild flavor then regular raspberries.
I loved them. I had some by themselves and some I put in my cereal in the morning.
Now, if you have not ever had them, it's normal for them to have little brown/black fur on them. When I first saw them I thought they had mold on them but they didn't.
They have little tiny hair like things on them. Regular raspberries do too but the color shows up more on the Golden raspberries.
I would love to make jam from these but they are pretty expensive and would cost a bit to much to buy enough to make jam. At least for my pocket book.
So tell me, what are some of the other unique and different fruits and vegetables that are out there that you think I should try. There are so many things that I don't even know what some of them are when I see them at the grocery store.
