Thursday’s Side Dish: Sour sop

An acquired taste with healing properties 

We picked up a can of Bestt brand name sour sop in syrup during a recent visit to HMart. Each can runs between $ 3.00 and $ 3.99 so shop around for the best price. The Mixed Stew crew could always sniff out the sour sop tree and its fruit in the tropical jungle while growing up in Guam. Sour sop trees (Annona muricata) are native to the Mexican peninsula, the Caribbean, and Central America. The definitive aroma just hints at the tart and pungent flavors that one can enjoy from consuming sour sop. The people at Bestt suggest serving this food item chilled or over crushed ice. Sour sop has been reported to possess many health benefits, such as cancer curing properties. The veracity of the reports is unconfirmed by us, but hey, why not try it out?
