Kitchen Dictionary: rambutan

Pronounced: ram-BOOT-n

A medium-sized tree producing a red or yellow fruit with a thin leathery rind that is covered with many curved or fleshy spines, giving it a hairy appearance. The rambutan is round to oval in shape and 1-2 inches in diameter. The sweet translucent flesh is white or rose-tinted, juicy and surrounds an oblong seed. The flavor is similar to that of the Litchi. Rambutan is eaten raw (after removing the rind), but can also be canned (fruit cocktails) or made into jams.

Ethnicity: Malaysian Ingredient

Season: available year-round

How to prepare: Peel and eat whole, discarding the seed.
