Anyone ever used Sapote before?

NickMontreal | Feb 8, 2010 09:41 AM

So I was in my favourite spice store the other day and was looking around for a vanilla bean. An eager sales boy pointed me in the right direction and also wanted to show me something he thought I might be interested in. He presented me with a sapote pod, which he explained could be used as a substitute for almond extract. And it did indeed have the characteristic bitter almond flavour found in marzipan or amaretto.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience using this odd little spice... Did it yield good results? Is it worth me spending the money on it?
