It's dried dragon fruit, also known as Pitaya, Pink Pitaya, Red Pitahaya, Night blooming Cereus, Strawberry Pear, Belle of the Night, and conderella plant. The fresh stuff was recently blogged about by Nicky at Delicious Days. Though common to Mexico and Costa Rica, this dried dragon fruit came from Thailand.
Congratulations to Debra for correctly guessing the answer first (though in the future I will probably only allow one entry per person!) Second place goes to Jackie. Consolation prize for Fatemeh who correctly remembered Nicky's post. Kudos to Anthony, J and Tamara for your correct guesses. So many correct answers, ya'll are getting too smart for me!
Thanks for playing along.
