Life List Day 189 - Try Cherimoya
I've been wanting to try one of these forever. Back when I worked in the rideshare office, I remember the gals in the breakroom oohing and ahhing over them when they'd be in season.
So today, I tried a Cherimoya ($3.97 for one about the size of an apple, which I purchased at Vons...it's the first time I've seen them there). I just cut it in half and dug in with a spoon, as if I were eating a yogurt.
YUM! It was sort of custardy, and tasted surprisingly tropical - I'd expected appley and got mangoey.
Those seeds were a nuisance but, overall, a fun, fruity experience.
