Miel de Cacao
3.75 fl oz / 110ml
Don't be expecting a chocolatey taste — this syrup is on the other end of the flavor spectrum. Made from the fruit of the same cocoa that produces Mindo Chocolate, our Miel de Cacao has a sweet and pleasantly tart taste similar to grape and apple sabas.
As a bean-to-bar chocolate maker, we love the idea of using as much of the cocoa plant as possible. So, during the fermentation process of our cocoa beans, we collect the white fruit that surrounds the beans and boil it down, yielding a delicious syrup that has a vibrant, fruity taste. We've heard the taste likened to a variety of things : honey, pomegranate, tamarind, balsamic vinaigrette, and raspberry vinaigrette, to name a few.
Miel de Cacao is perfect in marinades, vinaigrettes, stir fry, cocktails, and—as we learned from the native Ecuadorians—drizzled over ice cream. Search for more recipes and substitute Miel de Cacao for Saba, mosto cotto or vin cotto.
