Fresh cacaopod

Just received a fresh cacaopod, form Colombia, how nice is this!!

Shall open this one very soon…

The shell of the cocoa fruit feels leathery and is as hard as a nut. During the maturation process, the skin becomes wrinkled and changes colour from green to yellowy-brown before developing a reddish tinge. The seeds, in other words the actual cocoa beans, are surrounded by a thin, slimy, whitish fruit flesh. As the fruit matures, the flesh contracts and the beans begin to hang loose in the pod.

Both the flesh and the beans of the cocoa pods can be eaten raw. The flesh can be sucked away from the beans and has a slightly citrus taste when unripe. In a ripe condition, by contrast, it is sweet and very tasty. The raw cocoa beans are comparable with soft nuts and taste strongly of dark chocolate.

Mai Nguyen

Moet ik vertellen dat Mai een klantje is die sinds korte tijd de weg gevonden heeft naar chocolade, en wat voor chocolade!

Marou natuurlijk, chocolade uit haar geboorteland Vietnam. Mai Nguyen is afkomstig uit Hanoi en studeert in Kortrijk marketing. Verlekkerd op chocolade en vooral veel interesse op de haar favoriete winkel in Kortrijk, patisserie-chocolaterie Vercruysse. Het uitgangbord trekt steeds haar aandacht en lees verder uit het artikel van “Gie & ik”, magazine vol verhalen en mensen uit Kortrijk.
