Sweetsop Sorbet

What the heck is a sugar apple? That's what I first thought when my dad showed up in the kitchen with two of them, and after a quick Google search (which is where I found the pic), I found out their common name is "sweetsop". I had asked my dad to surprise me with something I had never tried in a recipe before, and I definitely had never seen OR tasted these. They taste like a strange mix between a really sweet pear, and something else, that I cant quite put my finger on. I decided to make sorbet out of it, mixed with strawberries. Delicious!

I don't have a picture...we ate it so fast that there wasn't time. To make it, 2 sweetsops, 1 cup of frozen strawberries (the last flat from the market!), 1/2 a cup of water, less than 1/4 of a cup of brown sugar.

Next time I make this (and there will be a next time believe me...) I might not use any sugar at all, it was really sweet!


  1. how cool is that fruit!? i've never heard of it!

  2. In Australia it is called a Custard Apple. Maybe custard is the elusive taste....

  3. huh that's pretty neat, a custard apple? crazyyy
