If you live in Asia, you would know what the sapodilla fruit or ciku fruit looks and tastes like. It is very sweet when ripe but it is also a haven for fruit worms. Many people dislike eating this as they worry they will accidentally eat the tiny white worms too!
Besides eating them as they are, you can make a pretty easy soup with the sapodilla fruit.
This soup helps clear the lungs.
All you need are:
4 ripe ciku, de-skinned
1 medium papaya, peeled and sliced in chunks
2 tablespoons medlar seeds or boxthorn fruit, washed
4 candied dates, wash
lean pork (blanch)
In a pot, bring 1.5 liters to boil. Add all the above ingredients and bring to a boil for 10 minutes. Cover pot, lower heat and simmer for 2 hours. Season to taste with 2-3 teaspoons salt. Serve.
