Star gooseberry, also known as mayom or the otaheite gooseberry, is a small yellow fruit from the gooseberry tree. Despite its name these fruits are not related to gooseberries. Star gooseberries are juicy and crisp with a distinctive sour-tart flavor. These pickled star gooseberries are whole fruit picked at optimal ripeness and preserved in a seasoned vinegar solution. These pickled mayo are ready-to-eat straight out of the jar but are equally good in cocktails, salads, and cooked dishes.
Uses: Star gooseberry is excellent in sweet cocktails, paired with grilled meats, and used as a relish.
