Carambola - Star Fruit

There are weeks when I just feel like we just eat the same old thing over and over. So this year I decided to make a goal to pick up something new and different each time I go to the grocery store. I figure this way I can get more acquainted with the unique and hopefully that will spice up my monthly menus a little bit. Last week I brought some carambola or star fruit home. The kids loved the star shape! You just slice it and poof stars. It has a bitter sweet flavor. Is that even possible? Truthfully it reminded me of eating a flower. I thought if flowers tasted like they smelled this is what they would taste like.
