Rambutan are from the lychee family, and fresh have that same milky-white gelatinous flesh and a single large pit. They have a more subtle, delicate taste than lychee, but are quite good.
Since they are similar to lychee, look for lychee recipes and sub in the rambutan. You said yours are freeze-dried, can you rehydrate them or do they just turn into a paste? Maybe drop a couple into vodka, add some Soho lychee liqueur, and think about a tropical island.
