Relatively unavailable in the US until recently, we first tasted the mangosteen while in the Vietnam countryside, and I’ve been keeping an eye out for the things ever since.

At long last, the local 99 Ranch received a shipment (selling for $6.99/lb), and I snatched up a couple pounds worth last night. Damn these things are good.
And, in preparation for that potential partaking: how to enjoy a mangosteen.Filed under crap I buy, uncategorized | Comment (0)
