frozen mangosteens... worth it?

J-Dawgz | Jan 5, 2006 07:15 AM

I've read alot about mangosteens, and want to know if anyone has ever bought them frozen. I recently saw them in chinatown, and I figure they're meant to be thawed and eaten, but perhaps when frozen they're intended for custard or some other preparation. They're supposed to be really difficult to get, I read about someone who tried to have them shipped here, and they were held (and ultimately eaten) by customs officials. Anything antone knows would be helpful, including recipes.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
