Jujubes are still relatively unknown in the United States. This rare fruit, however, will probably make its name known before long. Rich in vitamin C, the jujube is a little golf ball-sized charmer with a small hard pit. It offers a crisp texture and a unique flavor unlike any other fruit. Jujubes can be eaten out of hand but are often candied or dried. When dried they have a wrinkled date-like appearance. Try sautéing fresh jujubes in a vegetable dish for an unexpected punch of flavor. Used in Chinese medicine for 4,000 years, tea made with jujubes and an extract of its leaves are thought to relieve stress.
