frozen lychees


i’m not sure if you get fresh lychees there, but i got some recently from the market. the problem was that some were a bit too ripe and they go rancid when they become overripe. so after having a fill of the fresh ones, i peeled the leftovers, poured some lime juice on them, topped them with sugar, and froze them. made for a good, refreshing snack the day after. 🙂

for some who may not be familiar with this fruit, this is how fresh lychees look like (they’re usually sold by the kilo, packed in a bunch with their stems on. photos below from a streetstall in beijing. waaah, it’s been more than a year since i last travelled out of the country).

    it's amazing how we can be separated 8,000 miles and be enjoying the same things. last week was the kilo bangus, this time it's the lychees. my dad bought me some — i think he got them from chinatown — and they were really, really sweet.
