Peel and de-seed cherimoyas prior to consuming them. Once cut the fruit will oxidize over time, so if not consuming or blending into a recipe immediately, apply a little citrus juice or vitamin C to the exposed inner flesh to prevent darkening.
Delicious chilled and eaten just by themselves, fresh cherimoyas can also be used in smoothies, salads, and desserts…particularly custards and ice creams. For a quick, easy, and refreshing treat, try freezing them for 30 minutes, the flesh will become almost the consistency of sherbet!
Pair cherimoya with flavors like citrus juice, heavy cream, freshly grated nutmeg, honey, sour cream, berries, melons, vanilla or any tropical fruit.
