Our latest adventure saw our hero introduced to the juice of the acerola plant by Kiko and Johan. The juice was served mixed with orange juice and the result was very tasty indeed. Here is a bit of information about the acerola fruit:
Fruits are round to oblate, cherry-like but with 3 lobes. They are bright red (rarely yellow-orange) with thin skin, easily bruised. The pulp is juicy, acid to sub-acid occasionally nearly sweet, with a delicate flavor and apple notes. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C, up to 4,000 mg per 100 g fresh weight, but typically around 1,500 mg C. Green fruits have twice the Vitamin C level of mature fruits.
Also our intrepid hero was told of the meaning of the word ‘salgado’ — It apparently means (variously) ‘salty’, ‘savoury’ or ‘snack’. Yum.
