Working upstairs from one of the largest selections of local and international produce in the Midwest always has us eager to try something new, and temptation is just a staircase away.
Which means that we occasionally finding ourselves wandering the aisles of Jungle Jim’s International Market, eyeballing all of the interesting food from around the world, food that wouldn’t normally grace our tables at home. And we’ll be the first to admit that some of the brightly colored, oddly shaped fruits and veggies can maybe seem a bit intimidating; what if you buy something and end up hating it? What if you buy something and can’t figure out how to eat it?
That’s how we felt every time we saw the boxes of beautiful kiwano melons that live in International Produce. What the heck are we supposed to do with THAT? But with a little guidance from the experts downstairs, we felt confident enough to slice one open and give it a shot!
