Three-year old, Kiara Kubota said "this dish is special to me because it tastes yummy!" Li hing mui Starfruit is also special to Kiara as she gets to help her Daddy make it.

Kiara's Mom said that this is a healthy after school snack. She said they have an abundance of starfruit at the family's farm so they started dehydrating some because they can’t eat them fast enough. This snack has become a family favorite that is also easy to make.
