It’s Super Bowl Sunday! I plan to have a plate of Hawaii rambutan next to me for the game. According to recent news articles, it’s important to my heart that I relax during the game and avoid fatty foods. I’m betting that sitting in a lotus position with a plate of rambutan will do just the trick.
Rambutan is an exotic fruit and my favorite winter treat here in the islands. You’ll see them for sale at roadside stands or at markets in January and February. These leathery skinned fruits with pliable spines may seem odd at first. Whatever you do, don’t bite into them.
Here’s my playbook for the best way to prepare a plate of rambutan for the game:
- Score outside with knife around the circumference.
- Down and In. Hold the other half and squeeze the fruit in mouth.
- Penalty if you eat the seed inside while you enjoy the sweet taste.
What’s on your Super Bowl plate?
