Morning at Mararu, part 7
I forgot to mention that our friends, Paulo and Zilma, operate a small processing plant for cupuaçu fruit. The marketable part of the fruit is the pulp, which is used for making juices, ice cream and a thousand other things in this part of the world, including fine chocolates filled with cupuaçu cream. What you see in the attached image are seeds from a rather busy day in the "factory". I forgot to ask what they planned on doing with all these seeds. Some folks make chocolate from them.
