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).
