Wood Apple Cream

These are very sour when unripe. When we were young we used to make sambol with such unripe wood apple (even though we call it sambol it is actually a quick pickle). The flesh in the ripe wood apple can be dark brown or black in colour and can be used as  fruit juice or as a dessert. I can remember my mother used to add some coconut milk to this, some add milk. But I do not add either.
