Having had a surfeit of imported fruits (apples, oranges, pears, grapes, etc.), I pounced on these custard apples when I last visited the supermarket. It was great rediscovering their taste, and guess what, becoz' I blog, I sat down in front of my laptop and 'googled'!
Some irrelevant facts:
- Also known as 'cherimoya', sherbet fruit, bullock's heart (never fails to amaze me how creative mankind is when naming objects)
- No cholesterol, contains protein, fibre, potassium and vitamin C
- Can be served with cheese (found out too late after I had consumed all my apples - will need to try this out when I buy my next batch of apples - wonder which type of cheese will pair well?)
- Found a whole bunch of recipes using this fruit in shakes, desserts and even for savoury meals - am definitely hitting the supermarket again!
