I've never eaten a starfruit before.  Which is strange, because they've been right there in the supermarket tempting me for the last several decades.  Yesterday I bought one and went on a search for what to do with it.  After all, it's more difficult to ignore an ingredient if it's in your hand.  At least that's my theory - override my laziness with my stinginess around wasting food.  I did some poking around online and the best option seemed to be to dry them, which I figured I'd like as I like dried banana chips.  In the end, it was less about drying them and more about candying them.  What all the recipes have in common is a cup of sugar.  After that, it's variations on the theme.  I went with number three below, although if there had been ginger around the house, I would have combined #2 and #3.  They were delicious and, as an added bonus, I have a quarter cup of honey/star fruit infusion to put in tea.
