Anyone Seen Canned Rambutan in Local Markets?

opinionatedchef | Feb 10, 201509:33 PM

I have recently been won over by canned well chilled Rambutan* over its relative, Lychee fruit.Both are Thai exports iirc. But I have only found it at Sun Sun in Chinatown. Much to my surprise, HMart Burl. does not carry it. Have you seen it around;where? Thx much! I was wondering if anyone had seen it at Reliable, Cmart Washington St., or other.....

Canned Rambutan looks exactly like canned lychee fruit , only a bit bigger. It lacks that very 'high pitched'lychee perfume, and I prefer it over lychee. It is so refreshing in flavor and I freeze the juice/syrup it comes in, which makes a perfect textured popsicle/sorbet.
