Mangosteen: As my readers know by now, I love finding new fruits and vegetable to try for the blog. Not only are they healthy, but they're usually pretty inexpensive and easy to find. While browsing the produce section at the Buford Highway Farmers Market, I noticed something that I'd seen there before but never gotten around to trying: mangosteen. Despite the name, it looked nothing like any mango I've tried. It was also rather expensive ($6.99/lb!), but a nice lady shopping close by saw me examining them and told me that they were "really good for you," and I should try. That was all I needed to hear, so I selected a small one and threw it in my basket.
