Here's a little something we had for dessert on Sunday. My dear K's mum brought it back from her trip to Madeira. I hadn't tried this before - well, I must admit I hadn't even heard of this particular exotic fruit before (it's a popular houseplant - meeldiv monstera in Estonian - but it doesn't bear fruit indoors). It tasted as we expected once we had read about it in the Internet - a cross between pineapple (flavour) and banana (texture). Not something I'd rush out to buy again, but definitely interesting and quite pleasant.
What do you think about this "Swiss cheese plant" aka "Mexican breadfruit" aka "Penglai banana"? Any interesting recipes out there?
