Journal - Cocoa Fruit







Have you ever seen a cocoa fruit? Yes - the cocoa that is made into chocolates. Well - this is the fruit that has been given to me an very nice old lady - an friend of fil. When eaten raw, the cocoa seeds taste like mangosteen.
To turn it into chocolate is a whole different matter. One would have to remove the seeds from the pod, dry it, roast it and start to gring the seeds to obtain pure cocoa. Mix it with milk, sugar, etc - would result in delicious chocolate! Chocolate - my favourite food... Drool....

Yeah, it is really amazing how something so white and soft can be turned into chocolate, so totally different.
