- Quenepas taste like a cross between a lime and a lychee, with both sweet and sour notes.
- These are best eaten fresh but can be used to make beverages, desserts, and jellies.
- You can pop the entire fruit in your mouth, suck the fruit from the seed, and eat it! The juice can stain, so be careful!
- 2 pounds quenepas, peeled
- 1-inch piece ginger, blended and strained
- ¼ liter of water
- 1 lime, juiced
- Honey, to taste
- Boil the water while you remove the quenepa skins and place them into a large bowl.
- Pour boiling water over the fruit and leave for 20 minutes or until cool.
- With your hands, rub the pulp from the seeds, massaging all the fruits to get the flesh and juice released in the water.
- Strain the mixture and add the lime juice. Sweeten to taste. Store in the refrigerator.
