Friday 2 January 2009: Custard Apple
Went to an after Christmas get together with some friends, there was a Custard Apple being proffered and I'd never even heard of them, so I tried some and it was very sweet, more vanilla than custard and with a soft texture. The skin was amazing.
I'd been thinking about what to post for a PAD and thought a segment of the apple would be ideal. I quickly set up an impromptu studio using a mini tripod an upturned plate and a gold napkin. (thanks to the guests).
Oh and the party was good fun to!
A quick google search revealed that Custard Apples belong to the Annonaceae family of trees. And that this fruit came from an Australian cultivar (don't mention the food miles).
