THIS IS WHAT A CHIRIMOYA LOOKS LIKE INSIDE

The Pacay from last week's post may be called the ice cream bean but there is another exotic fruit from Bolivia which truly holds the ice cream crown. That fruit is the pre-historic looking cherimoya (also spelled chirimoya). What does cherimoya taste like?

We call this Custard Apple and I make a mean ice-cream with the pulp.
We have good many plants and the winter crop is more sweet is when we eat it as a table fruit and the monsoon crop which is less sweet is used for making ice-creams or kulfi, which is traditionally an Indian version of ice-cream.

Chirimoya is the the prelude to heaven when you taste it you will want to have more of it. In Australia is known as apple custard. Don't miss out of a wonderful gift nature has provided for us....

Just a Trifle of Cherimoya Ice Cream
by: Anonymous

You know Chef Noly, my grandmother was from Minnesota where "just a trifle" means "just a little" of something. She tells of a trip to England many years ago where her amazing hostess offered a huge multi-course dinner. When dinner was over and everyone was feeling very full and heavy, the hostess asked if anyone wanted some dessert. So my grandma told her "oh, please, just a trifle" meaning something tiny because she was so full already.

The hostess, without batting an eyelash, disappeared into her kitchen for over half an hour. While my grandmother and other guests continued to sit at the table chatting with the hostesses' husband, people began to look at their watches, wondering where she was. The host said nothing, you know the British are so polite!

When she finally re-appeared, she came in and set this HUGE ice cream trifle on the table. In England trifles are enormous ice cream desserts made for 8-12 people!!! Hahahaha.
