Jamun (Java plum) frozen yogurt.

I have fond childhood memories of wiping off bowls and bowls of jamun (with rock salt ofcourse). 
 
And in July, I was handed over several boxes of these, thanks to mom. After consuming many of these babies just the way we did when we were kids and comparing the purple colour on our tongues (like all mature adults are expected to) I was left with a huge batch resting patiently inside my fridge.
Like frozen yogurt? Like jamun?
Time for some Jamun (Java plum) frozen yogurt. 
 
And trust it was really the best fruit yogurt I’ve ever had/made. The flavor was really fresh, the texture was creamy, the colour…well simply gorgeous and the yogurt did total justice to the succulent and tangy jamuns. Its now the family’s favorite yogurt. A pity that the jamun season has almost come to an end:(

    That looks amazing, Prachi! It's been years since I've had jamuns. or cheekoos (is that the right spelling????). Sigh.

    Many fond memories of jamun trees from my childhood–they taste best plucked (or shaken) straight off a tree, no? 🙂
