Nispero Cobbler

Nispero Cobbler

Nispero Cobbler is sooo yummy! Served warm with vanilla ice cream.

What are Nispero's - These are small peach-coloured fruits they are a little fussy to prepare but have a delicate taste.  These can be enjoyed during the Spring season

While the skin can be eaten the best bit is inside, the flesh. The fruit contains large seeds that are toxic and must not be eaten as they contain cyanogenic glycosides, mainly amygdalin, which release cyanide. Lots of people make chutney, jelly and jam using the Nispero.

They are low in calories, and packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and rich in soluble fibre, they also contain vitamins' A, C and E, and traces of the groups B, B1, B6, B2 and B, with potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, zinc, iodine and Selenium!! Despite all this they taste lovely! it is said that they may promote heart health, have anticancer properties, improve metabolic health and offer anti-inflammatory properties.

You will see these being grown in the valley of Callosa d'En Sarrià, just 15 minutes inland from Benidorm, they are our locally produced "superfood".
