I am new to eGullet and this is my first official post (so please forgive me if I blunder about initially). Actually, this is my first post on any internet forum ever, so this is a very big step in my own very small world!
Anyway, I am really excited about this topic. My SO loves ice-cream, but is very diet/health conscious. So, I have tried converting rum raisen ice cream recipes into rum raisen frozen yogurt recipes. He always says he loves it, but I think he is just being kind. Also he may be drunk from all the rum I put in there.
Anyway, this thread has inspired me to try to make a cherimoya sorbet. This is a wonderful fruit with an unusually creamy texture, so I am hoping that the end result is reminiscent of ice cream, but without the cream. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
Welcome, AmyKay!! We're happy to have you here, and it's an honor that this forum is the first place you've chosen to post!
I've heard of cherimoya, but I don't know anything about it. You describe it as having a creamy texture. Can you give more information? For instance - is it sweet, sour, big, small, pulpy? What the heck is a cherimoya, anyway, and where does it grow?
Finally, do post pictures if you can - and if you can't, tell us how it comes out anyway. Very few eGulleteers bite - except on food - so don't be shy about posting!
Oh, and by the by - getting an SO drunk on something so he thinks it's good is a pretty good strategy, in my book.
