Colored krautstiel

The first official appearance of Krautstiel colored in dishes is attributed to Italy’s largest island, Sicily. For this reason, Krautsiel is often found as an ingredient in many Italian dishes. They are used in salads, stewed with vegetables and boiled in soups. Many people notice its subtle bitterness in its raw form. After cooking, it fades and acquires a delicate and mild taste, more appetizing than the taste of spinach.

tangerines

Clementines

Clementine probably originated from a cross between a tangerine and a bitter orange. Like other citrus fruits, it thrives best in warm climates where it can ripen under intense sunlight. Many people simply call them tangerines. However, they are not the same fruit. Clementines have a tighter and shinier skin than tangerines, their fruit is spherical, flattened at the top. They are sweeter, juicier and even melt in the mouth, rarely have seeds.

lychees

Litschis

Litschis can be eaten raw. Simply cut off part of the skin with the tail, then gently peel off the remaining skin with your fingers. Then we come to the sweet, refreshing, slightly acidic pulp, which should be firm in consistency, and the color of mother-of-pearl. Finally, you need to remove the brown-black stone – just make a cut on one side of the meat and gently pull the stone out from the center. It is important to know that if removing the skin causes problems, this is a sign that the fruit is still unripe.
