Daily Gluttony

These little hairy gems are called rambutan! They're a tropical fruit that has a prickly (but not painful!) outside. You peel the outside off and inside is a soft, fleshy fruit that tastes somewhere between a grape and a pear. I found it at my local Asian supermarket and was totally curious about it. Obviously, so was my buddy Max.
