fruit on fire

Food & Drink - - TRENDSPOTT­ING -

While most peo­ple pre­fer their fresh fruit straight up, some cul­tures like to turn up the heat. In Thai­land, for ex­am­ple, sliced man­goes dipped into a fiery mix­ture of dried Thai chill­ies, rock sugar and salt is a pop­u­lar street snack. And, in Mex­ico, the love of spiced fruit has spawned a sea­son­ing called Ta­jín made from dried hot peppers, de­hy­drated lime juice and salt. Look to these coun­tries for in­spi­ra­tion the next time you want to take a fruit salad from sim­ple to sensationa­l.
