Yaga--the marshmallow fruit!
Months have now passed, and HEB is continuing to wise up. Today, I noticed quarter-sections of yaga. And the price had gone down. Considerably.
Yaga, today is your lucky day.
I bought one. Hacked into it and cut it up into chunks. Word to the wise, that sticky stuff is a bear to get off one´s hands, knives, cutting board, etc. Regular dish soap doesn´t do much to unstick anything. JabonZote proved to be much more useful. Pretty intense scrubbing was still necessary, but the gunk eventually came off. Today.
The flower petal-y parts still proved to be intriguing, but still on the bland and chewy side. But, while hacking up the yaga, I found the real jewel--each rock-sized seed was nestled in an orange bed of meaty fruit! This must be the part for baking, frying, boiling, and mashing! This part had flavor! And texure that doesn´t make me worry about my digestive tract for the next few days!
