ruger2, I don't have a recipe for the very simple way we enjoy tamarillos but basically all I do is peel, then slice the tamarillos and place them in a serving dish, giving each layer a light sprinkling of sugar. I cover the dish and let the tamarillos stand in the refrigerator - while the sugar sweetens the tamarillos it also makes a delicious syrup which with the tamarillos is IMO divine with custard, icecream, yoghurt or cereals, or even on their own.

For tamarillo info' and recipes have a look at:-

Hope that helps. :-))

You're very welcome ruger2 - I very very rarely ever eat whipped cream but I think you'd be quite correct - for anyone who does enjoy whipped cream, it and the tamarillos would, I expect, be divine. :-))

That's the only way I do them & they are lovely. I don't know why people cook them, unless it's for a cake or cake type dessert.

Made a tamarillo and grape crumble once and it was really good! Great change of season dessert

Plunge unpeeled tams into boiling water and leave a few mins. Plunge into cold water and skin will easily slide off. Leave stalks on and stew gently with sugar and a little water until soft but not over cooked and squishy. These are then amazing warm or cold with ice cream, of yogurt. Divine.
