Pupunha fruit, continued

This image demonstrates the high value of pupunha in the world of tropical foods. A very thin skin, a relatively small seed and lots of "meat". The normal way of preparing the fruit is to boil them in salted water for about 15-20 minutes. Eat them like this, or if you want to get fancy, add butter or margarine while they're hot.

On second thought..."One average pejibaye fruit contains 1,096 calories".

Holy mackerel, that's a lot of calories.

This sounds yummy! I like the pictures you take and the way you describe things so well.
