the other apple


Same day, different apple product. This time it was a custard apple from the tree in our back yard. The real deal. No cardboard cut-out here. Although she did take a bite, just to be sure. She won't be fooled twice!

Sooo... custard apples. Weird little things. I don't suppose any of you fine people know what to do with them? Any recipe ideas?

  5. Firstly, I just love Lalie in that little floral dress (love a dark floral). Seconds, fancy having something as exotic as a custard apple in the backyard! Well, exotic for those in the colder regions anyway. I've only ever eaten them as is, but I thought this recipe looked quite nice :

  6. Yum, I love them and am extremely jealous that you grow your own! (Gorgeous pics btw). I just eat it plain, as they are...let them ripen on the bench.

  12. Oh I remember having a custard apple tree when we were growing up! Have you found any uses for it? Not sure of any recipes though. We always just enjoyed that creamy sweetness. x

  13. We always just ate them plain too, my grandpa would always give us half each for desert when we were kids. Sorbet sounds like a good idea though.
