Here is what I know about soursop:
- It’s also called guanabana
- I never had a soursop before coming to Jamaica and I was hesitant to try it because it kinda stinks. Now that I’ve tried it I can’t really describe what it tastes like other than it’s a bit sour.
- I read that it bears fruit from August to November, but we have a soursop tree in our yard and right now we have so much soursop that we can’t even give it away fast enough.
- Not everyone likes it. The Woolery’s are divided on this one. Mr. Charles loves it, Ms. Faye likes it, I tolerate it and Omar hates it.
- It is used in some cancer treatments.
Here’s what it looks like:
Ms Faye juices it like this:
Then she adds sugar, some lime juice and white rum. I decided to take up another level and make Soursop Coladas (because I’m obsessed with Pina Coladas). I added some ice and extra rum. I must say it was pretty tasty, and if I’m going to drink soursop this is the only way I will do it:
Hopefully one day you will get to taste my Soursop Colada at Woolery Kitchen.
