And all of a sudden last week after doing some voluntary work I was rewarded with a big fruit. The nice couple did not know that they had given me a real treasure - a pink pomelo!! They just said "Hope the fruit is still good!! Take it!!" When I got home it was a marvellously pink and juicy fruit...God is indeed provident and as I ate the fruit I really missed all my children.
Also BTW we Foochows believe that the pink pomelo can get rid of intestinal worms in young children.
How do you get these beautiful segments of a pink pomelo displayed in this way? It is a very intricate procedure actually. Patience is the key word.
Segments of pink pomelo on a plain white platter is a delightful Sarawakian after dinner fruit dessert.
First you have to cut into the thick skin...make about seven or eight slits.
Go around the skin and scour out the fruit....at the crown and then pull out the outer skin. This is quite an intricate skill...
The fruit segments can slowly be peeled
|The whole fruit is taken out of the skin and peeled segment by segment. Each segment is then skinned..|
