Let’s see what’s in the July 2016 “Brazil” Try the World box!
The familiar teal (turquoise?) box!
A peek inside. — Jam-packed as usual. 🙂
Inside the fold-out Culture Guide were Brazilian recipes, a playlist, and photos/descriptions of each item in the box.
Terra Moriá Jabuticaba Jam – According to the info card, jabuticaba are black berries that grow on both the trunk and branches of jabuticaba trees. The fruit is unique to Brazil, which is probably why I’ve never heard of it before. Terra Moriá makes their jam with less sugar than other brands and it’s both vegan-friendly and gluten free.
Grani Amici Pão de Queijo Mix – A traditional Brazilian cheese bread mix consisting of just tapioca starch, potato starch, and salt. Combine the mix with water, vegetable oil, eggs, and grated cheese to form a homogenous dough. Shape it into small balls, bake, and enjoy.
BR Spices Churrasco Spice Mix – This versatile Brazilian seasoning can be used as a meat rub, mixed into salad dressing, or sprinkled on roasted veggies for an added burst of flavor. Ingredients include sweet paprika, garlic, onion, rosemary, coriander, mustard, and more.
Frutos da Amazônia Brazil Nut Cookies – Believe it or not, these Brazil nut cookies are vegan-friendly! Heck yes! Didn’t see that comin’. 😉 These are made without preservatives and are trans fat free. Enjoy them with tea or just as a plain ol’ afternoon snack. Both options sound good to me!
Bazzar Churrasco Sauce – A traditional churrasco (barbecue) sauce made in Rio de Janeiro, this product is ideal for flavoring meat, veggies, and even pizza. I’m a big fan of BBQ sauce, so I’m curious to see how this compares to the US version.
Café do Centro Paraná Coffee Grounds – Coffee is Brazil’s national drink and they produce more than a third of the world’s supply of it. Included in the box was this single-origin ground coffee from the Paraná region. The package describes it as caramel flavored with intense acidity and notes of hazelnut.
Monama Brazilian Nuts Spread – An exotic alternative to plain ol’ peanut butter, this spread is made from peanuts, raw brown sugar, Brazilian nuts, cashew nuts, coconut oil, and Himalayan salt. It’s both vegan & gluten free and I’m looking forward to trying it!
Val Alimentos Goiabada – A traditional fruit spread made by boiling guava juice with sugar, this is often served with soft cheese as a dessert. It can also be used as a meat glaze or spread onto your favorite desserts.
