Folks in Spanish-speaking islands call this guanabana. The fruit is oblong or slightly heart-shaped, its green skin is covered with spines and the white flesh inside is full of seeds. The best way to enjoy soursop is to first press the flesh through a sieve or through cheesecloth to extract the juice from the seeded pulp. Then mix with evaporated milk, water and sugar until the desired consistency and sweetness. Add a splash of rum, if desired. You can also use the soursop juice to make custard.
