Does anyone else on this board love fresh lychees? Many of the local lychee crops were destroyed by Hurricane Wilma last year (it affected the beginning of their growing season). But fortunately there are some groves down in Homestead that were spared. I picked up 6 pounds yesterday from a local source I know and wow are they delicious! I managed to get my hands on some Brewsters, which are scarcest in our area. They're now sitting in our freezer (after a wash in acidulated water); our favorite way to eat them in this disgusting summer heat. (It's like eating grapes from the freezer, but better.)
I can't wait to have a lychee martini! Does anyone have a favorite bar for lychee martinis?
