As I write this I'm enjoying a vodka and a DaFruta Mango cocktail. The DaFruta juice is from Brazil. I spied it at the "strange food" store that we go to once a week and I took a chance. If they have more when we go back next week I'll buy all that they have (not much). I love mango. BTW, the cocktail has been consumed... delicious.

Not all experiments work out. I also bought a "cashew juice" concentrate. It's just horrid. All I taste is the citric acid that's in it. I don't know what I expected, but not that. :-)

I've heard of the Cashew fruit juice sold in Brazil along the transportation route of the Cashews. Apparently the fruit is so delicate and subject to spoilage it can't be transported far before going to waste. That's probably why they do it in the concentrate form , who knows what they put in it for transport and storage.

Thanks. I didn't know. The smell is the best part of it. It has a nice aroma, just not much there for flavor. Yes, it has citric acid and 2 other chemicals as preservatives. Nothing really nasty though. We're making 5 gallons of dog food today, it'll go in there for them after I try it one last time and find that I still don't like it.

Makes sense and it's not going to waste.

Who else likes pumpkin beers? It's that time of the year! I've never had a pumpkin IPA before. It's pretty good although I think the flavor lends itself better to a brown ale or stout. I really like the label designs too.
