1/1 Photo of Broiled Star Fruit in Ginger

Krsi Sue's Note:
Fresh Star Fruit is one of the things I miss most about living in Guam. Carambola (Star Fruit) looks just like a star when sliced. The skin is a glossy golden yellow when ripe, its matching flesh beautifully translucent and dotted occasionally with a dark seed. When ripe, it is juicy and fragrant. Its flavor, depending on the variety, can range from exotically sweet to refreshingly tart. In general, the broader set the ribs, the sweeter the fruit. This recipe is from a Martha Stewart cookbook. Most of the time listed is cooling time for the ginger broth.
