In Menado, north of Indonesia, they made fish head soup with lots of these. Kind of refreshing. I have tried eating raw with salt, my gosh ..... The ripe ones aren't so bad, though :) These sometimes used as subtitute to tamarind.

yeah when I was a kid I eat it raw with salt..

Some locals here enjoy eating these raw.
I can't seem to enjoy it's taste, it taste sour.

we call it Kamias (Tagalog) / Iba (Visayan) here in the Philippines. I had made a vinegar out of this by placing a jar-full soaked with water and sprinkled with salt.
