|1||Cherimoya; 1 lb (large)|
From: Lu Bozinovich <U33754@...> Date: Sat, 23 Apr 1994 14:29:53 GMT With some trepidation, I tried cherimoya for the first time, and was delighted with its flavor when baked. As a raw fruit, it wasn't worth the novelty price paid for it.
Scrub the fruit clean. Cut cherimoya horizontally in half and place fruit face down on an oiled pie tin. Bake 400 F until the juices begin to caramelize and an aroma fills your house (about 1 hour).
Serve face up. The flavor is like a ginger custard. The texture is one of custard. The seeds are a bit of a bother, distributed throughout the fruit, so eat carefully. Raw, the fruit resembles an apple-pear.
