Cupuaçu

image

 The treasure of the Amazon.

The cupuaçu, or large-blossomed cacao, comes from Brazil and is an unusual fruit: massive in size, heavy, and with an attractive aroma. On the outside, it looks like an oval clay pot. When ripe, the heavy cupuaçu simply falls off the tree.

As one might expect from the creamy-colored interior, the cupuaçu not only smells good, but also tastes fantastically creamy, with a slightly sour, aromatic note. It tastes great when blended into smoothies, especially in combination with banana or vanilla.

During production, the rich fruit flesh is separated from the seeds, rinsed out, and then popped into the deep-freeze container to be shipped overseas.

Straight to you, for example!
