Miracle Fruit Tasting Party

This Friday (08-26-11) we will be hacking our taste buds with a Miracle Fruit tasting party. The Synsepalum Dulcificum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synsepalum_dulcificum) produces a berry that temporarily alters your taste buds into making sour and acidic things taste sweet.  We will be providing tablets that contain concentrated miracle berry powder (easier to ship than fresh fruit) and a few things to sample. We encourage you to bring along things to try and share with the group also. Possible suggestions include:

– citrus fruits (especially lemons)
– unsweetened coffee or espresso
– dark beers (Guinness is supposed to taste like a chocolate shake.)
– Brussels sprouts
– any other cabbage-based veg or lettuce
– hot sauce
– mustard
– vinegars
– goat cheese
– salt and vinegar potato chips
– pickles

This event is free and open to the public. HackPittsburgh’s doors will open at 7pm and we will start exploring foods shortly after.

    will you be using Miracle Frooties? They’re the best! If I wasn’t chilling in CA right now, I’d be soooooooo there!!!

    Since it’s an evening event, somebody should bring dark Guiness (tastes just like a chocolade shake) and tequila which is great, cause miracle fruit takes the stinng out of lemon and it tastes divine!

    A must are all citruses and goat cheese =)

    Have FUN!!!
