Here is something for all chocolate lovers emoticon
On my recent trip, my DH and I went to a chocolate plantation in Costa Rica. I watched a demonstration of the way natives of the area have harvested, prepared and enjoyed chocolate for many years. The plantation was a family owned place. We had a english speaking guide who explained the process step by step while a member of the family who owned the plantation demonstrated. The guide selected a piece of fruit from the tree and skillfully opened the fruit by cracking it on a tree. Inside were fleshy (sort of slimy) pods, similar to lychee nuts. He offered them fresh to anyone in the group to taste. I did. My DH wrinkled his nose and declined. The fleshy part was rather bland but inside was a harder seed. The guide said it would be bitter, he was right. Inside the see was a bright colored purple "gel like" substance. It was bitter, but tasted a bit like chocolate. The next step in the process of making the cocoa from the cacao seed is to "ferment" the seed. They spread out the fleshy seeds over something like a sieve and wait for them to drip off the fleshy part. It exposes the seed and it is left there to dry. The seeds are taken and checked for particles that are not seeds (sticks, etc). Next they are put into a large pan and roasted. They are done when they begin to crack and pop a bit. The guide said the popping sounds like popcorn just getting ready to pop. The hot seeds are allowed to cool a bit. We were offered the seeds to taste. So I did. They are bitter, but the taste of pure cocoa is now evident! I loved the taste, my DH....not so much. The next step is grinding of the seeds, done in a hand cranked grinder. Like the old fashioned way of grinding steak into burger meat. The plantation grew vanilla and sugar cane and these were soon to be added to the ground up beans. Other spices and flavorings were added....a bit of milk, in this case. The cocoa and spices are mixed together by hand kneading. Lots of cocoa oil is released during this step. The guide said cocoa oil has many uses. It is good for the skin, first aid, helps with burns and is a great mosquito repellent. The girl who was doing the demo was rubbing the oils into her skin as she worked. When the kneading is done, the chocolate is pressed thin onto a sheet....like a pizza tin in this case, an cut. We all got to taste and enjoy!
And that is how chocolate is made the old fashioned way.

Way, Way back I started this thread as something silly to do and also to get people to check in at least once a week. It's called "WooHoo" Wednesday. When Wednesday rolls around, come onto this thread and post a "woohoo".....either using words or the emoticon.

It's 2:30 EST--there is still time to get in your huddle WOOHOO! There are quite a few of them there already. It's amusing to watch WOOHOO scrolling across the Huddle screen.

If you haven't done so, post 'em!

Cat,
I think we are the only ones who are reading this thread right now, so you'll likely get second. There is always the chance that I will forget too--I've been known to do that--especially when I am distracted or busy--and I am both right now--it's the season.

I shall be at my computer, finger poised at midnight to get in that first woohoo, Cat. I am on the East coast in the US. I know you are Canadian but unless you are further East than I am--I'll beat ya to it! It'll be fun! I love a little competition.

I'M IN--IF I CAN REMEMBER!!

"Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

On one of the other boards I frequent (Managing Diabetes) a member started a "WooHoo Wednesday". On Wednesday, everybody posts "woohoo" on the huddle wall. It's sort of easy to remember since woohoo and wednesday start with "W". It is amusing to watch the "woohoo" across the screen and if everyone participates, we pick up over 50 points as a team that day. Each person picks up one. How about it? Who's in?
WooHoo on Wednesday.
