Healthy and decadent, this dessert is a Blue Osa original. The exotict star fruit is topped by  a sweet, yet savory, crumble and a tangy cream.  We are blessed at Blue Osa to have 3 large star fruit or carambola (in Spanish) tree that bears its fruits 4 times a year.

  1. When to add the starfruit, does it go in the bottom of the ramekin, then the crumble on top? And what is the instruction for the cream topping?
