We have a handful of people that attend our church that live up the mountain in a small community called Nigger Ground. Todd went for a visit the other day and one of the ladies gave him a star apple. She showed him how to eat it and sent one home to Nathan and me. The star apple is nothing like the jack fruit I wrote about awhile back. Although, not as unique as the jack fruit it is like none I have ever seen before.
Todd didn't cut it crossways, he just torn it down the middle so, we didn't get to experience the "star." The pulp close to the outside skin is a deep purple. The lady that gave it to him told him not to eat the purple pulp because it will "bind you up." And we sure don't won't to get bound up around here!
The inside consists of big black seeds covered in a white membrane. The membrane covering the seeds is the part you eat.
