This past weekend I was fortunate enough to go on a Vietnamese “food crawl” with the lovely Kim of Rustic Garden Bistro.
We walked around Westminster, CA., where Kim’s favorite Vietnamese eating spots are. While the food was delicious, and the company was delightful, the highlight for me, was purchasing a big, gorgeous bag of fresh lychees at one of the markets.
I am beyond excited to share them with you!
Lychees are absolutely stunning, delicate, very sweet, aromatic, and oh-so-delicious!
If you haven’t eaten a fresh lychee before, you’ll want to know how to peel and pit one. It’s an easy and quick process.
Be very gentle as you carefully remove the thin skin from the fruit. It will likely come off in just a few pieces.
It should very easily slide right out.
Don’t try to remove this — it’s very soft and doesn’t detract from the flavor of the fruit. (If you try to remove it, you’ll loose a lot of juice in the process.)
