Life list #14. Taste 100 new fruits

I’ve tasted quite a good number of fruits available in Indian markets. But, I’ve read names of many more fruits, that I don’t even know what they look it; let alone taste them.

So I’ve decided to taste at least 100 new ones, as a part of my bucket list programme, and I will be documenting the progress in this post.

Raspberry!

Raspberries

We begin with my trip to Germany in May 2011, where I had my heart’s fill of raspberries. Now I’ve had raspberries before, but in jams and jellies, so that doesn’t really count. Here, I tasted fresh raspberries, and ate them alone, unadulterated. And with Crème Bruûlée. And slathered over a cake.

Elderberry!

Elderberries are tiny berries and are a bartender’s favourite as they add a good flavour to most cocktails. I tasted my first elderberry in a Passion Fruit Daiquiri, again, on the trip to Germany.

Mandarin!

A sweeter version of the orange, I tasted slices of mandarin on a piece of cake in Germany.

And that takes the count to 3 so far. 97 more to go!
