I just bought my first Cherimoya and was looking around for suggestions on how to prepare it. I found lots of recipes that suggest it goes well with orange and some other fruits. But I'd love to hear any first hand experience you all have on good ways to enjoy it. Thanks!
U slice 'em thin and saute with a little butter. I do like a splash of tangerine with them. Or Lemon
Any evidence of stem - don't bite it off. It can be toxic - the seeds should also be considered toxic.
Otherwise, they're wonderful as a component in fruit salads or as an addition of fruit to a green salad and they can, of course, be eaten by themselves as you might consume any other type of fruit. I would not try cooking with them. IMHO, they're much too delicate to subject to the rigors of cooking.
I think they'd work well as a component in a whipped drink (milkshake, smoothie, etc.) or as an ingredient in ice cream or sherbet.
