INTO BRAZILIAN FRUITS

We started to analyze more and more exotic ingredients from Finger limes out of Australia over typical fermentation products from Korea over fruits from Brazil.
It is amazing how many unknown fruits (at least for us) there are in Brazil. We added the Foodpairing tree of Mangaba; a fruit which is a round yellow-to-red colored ball about the size of a baseball. The interior of the fruit is white with a number of small seeds. When the fruit is ripe, the pulp is so soft it practically melts in the mouth. The flavor is sweet and the fruit is highly perfumed (source)
