Groceries in Brazil

of Maria_Approx »10 Sep 2009 13:10

What is it and how is it eaten?
I have had questions about various foods for which I either need translation or I don't know what to do with them. I just list everything I can think of at the moment and will continue later.

Passion fruit. So aromatic and sooo sour. How do you eat them?

Cove. What are these bitter green leaves? What can you do with it?

Requejao. (or something like that) what is it? Suitable for Cheesecake or something like that?

Catupiry. Comes with dairy products but is not. What is that?

What is Chinese cabbage called here? I suspect that some vegetables have different names.

Same question for savoy cabbage and does it even exist?

is there double-handle flour here? if so, what is it called and where should you look for it?

is there any poultry on offer besides these gigantic chickens? Fresh duck, goose, turkey and also something small. So far I've only seen seasoned and frozen ones. But they are also available fresh, maybe only pieces from Turkey and at a fair price. Maybe from the farm? Or is there something typical of the country? A tasty Brazilian bird?

that's it for now.

1) Add a lot of sugar and spoon out with the kernels. is a powerful sedative
2) Mix with a lot of sugar and pass through a sieve and then rinse with water and make a fruit juice in the liquidifador
Cove. What are these bitter green leaves? What can you do with it?

Leaf cabbage. the ribs are removed, the leaves are rolled up tightly and finely cut into fine noodles. The ribs are also cut more coarsely and used with mixed vegetables.
You can eat the couve raw as a salad or refogado. Garlic butter should be eaten daily.
You can also use it with cabbage rolls or like savoy cabbage
Requejao. (or something like that) what is it? Suitable for Cheesecake or something like that?

There are several types.
The requeijão cremoso is a sour cream cheese spread
Or the solid ones, where starch and spices are added during cooking, it's a kind of cooked cheesecake. Usually made with whey cheese
Catupiry. Comes with dairy products but is not. What is that?

Is basically the same as Requeijão, spreadable and firm, in the wooden box. Was introduced by Italians almost exactly 100 years ago and still use the (kept secret spice brew. Excellent soft cheese
What is Chinese cabbage called here? I suspect that some vegetables have different names.

Acelga, açelga, couve chinesa
Same question for savoy cabbage and does it even exist?
Everything can be found in Brazil, especially in the Centro Oeste and more in the south. only savoy cabbage, you will find it difficult to find cabbage on the market, the leaf cabbage is more popular and easier to grow, and it is also healthier
is there double-handle flour here? if so, what is it called and where should you look for it?

you have to look at the types of flour, buy the cheapest
is there any poultry on offer besides these gigantic chickens? Fresh duck, goose, turkey and also something small. So far I've only seen seasoned and frozen ones.

Stay away from "fresh" poultry products. Firstly, it is forbidden because of salmonella, and secondly, it is mostly slices that have been thawed and re-frozen several times.
Sadia and especially Perdigão offer everything in consumer-friendly portion quantities.
Quail, pheasant, broiler chicken, turkey, grouse, country chicken,
Well, and there are other birds that are only marketed covertly. Parrots (only for soup), moutum, ... I even know someone in Sergipe who has been selling vultures for 30 years, breeds them like chickens, they taste great
Cheers meal, there are things that don't exist

Just a small addition to Robert's great explanations: Passion fruit can also be used to make an excellent caipirinha. Instead of the limes, simply put the passion fruit smudge in the glass, with seeds and everything (at least that's how I do it), as usual, sugar and crushed ice and top up with either good cachaça or vodka, if you like.
Every path begins with the first step (Chinese proverb)

For the cove, I think of "caldo verde", a soup. Can be refined with diced bacon and herbs and thickened with potatoes, served with sausages.

Maracujá: definitely try the "creme de maracujá" - sweet but tasty, the main ingredient is moça. The pulp can also be used to flavor sweet pastries. It is best to take the somewhat wrinkled fruits, from their appearance the wrinkled face also comes from (cara de maracujá)

Hehehe, and then they say I'm the house chauffeur here.

As for the food in Curitiba. especially the leaf varieties and products consumed raw. add 1 tablespoon of "agua Sanitaria" to one liter of water and let the vegetables stand for 15 minutes. As a newcomer to Brazil, you are not used to the bacteria here, the chlorine kills them. in addition, the leaves become crisper.
experiment with all kinds of leaves and vegetables (rucula, beldroega, jurubeba, guairoba, giló, pequi ...)
In 3 weeks I will continue with my cozinha goiana recipes, now I have too many tourists here, no time,
Cheers meal, there are things that don't exist

Couve is primarily used here for Feijão Tropeiro ... The other typical vegetables here are: chuchu, abobora (pumpkin), beteraba (I think beetroot or something, I don't know exactly what that means), batata (potato) , Cenoura (beet), pimentão (paprika / hot peppers), pepino (cucumber), pequi, cebola (onion) and mandioca.
The Requeijão is not a real cheese. Made here in the country and wastes a lot of milk. Therefore, it quickly costs R $ 15. Usually eaten raw as tira gosto with beer, etc.

Here in Salvador on the market you can buy the following poultry: chickens, chickens, guinea fowl, ducks, flight ducks (wart ducks), turkeys, pigeons, quails and geese (very expensive). There are also rabbits, guinea pigs and goats. They're all still alive, so they're super fresh. Then you have to kill the animals yourself. If you have them slaughtered, be careful, the Brazilians like to peel the skin off. Think the same poultry is available in your area.
If someone tells you: You can't do that! Always remember: these are his limits, not yours.

I thank everyone for the answers. Have already tried a few things over the weekend. The passion fruit cream is awesome !!! one could eat all the time.

I find the green soup with Cove interesting, tried to cook something similar. But the original recipe would be great.

Isn't it a bit too hard as a cabbage roll? Has anyone tried it yet?

if I want to find such a market in Curitiba, what should I look for? Does he have a specific name? And I suppose you would have to pluck the bird yourself? is not bad either ...

Then I have another question about Goiaba. My husband bought some once because they are so hard as stone that they are totally unfriendly to teeth. How do you eat them? Or just suitable for the juicer?

Which fruit would be suitable for making jam? Should taste good and not be expensive.

Sweet potatoes are there several types? I bought some very tasty fruity ones in Germany that had a strong orange color on the inside. Are there any here too? One that I tried was gray inside and not at all fruity in taste.

Which dairy product can I use for cheesecake?

What do you do with beef liver?

Thanks in advance

Maria

Ask 4 people and you will get 5 different original recipes.
Google times for "receita caldo verde", vary according to personal preferences and define a new original recipe!

About the goiabas: when eating straight, either swallow the kernels or spit them out, alternatively stir the pulp with a little water, skim off the kernels. Alternatively, pass the fruit pulp through a sieve.

If necessary, peel the beef liver, do not cut it too thick (the friendly butcher does that for us: "bife"), dry with kitchen paper, roll in a little flour and fry in good oil. Only add salt afterwards, otherwise it will be the sole of the shoe. A lot of fried onions and mashed potatoes go well with it.

enjoy the meal!

I recommend fried apple rings with the liver with mashed potatoes and braised onions! Or finely chop the liver and create a creamy slice with strips of paprika and plenty of onions! You can also turn the slightly frozen liver finely and make liver dumplings (make a mixture with an egg and a softened roll and then cook the dumplings in a strong broth, if they swim up they are good!)
Jam: Pass through the Goiaba as described by Tux, but you can also use mango (puree beforehand !!) or mixed types of fruit. Jabuticaba jam is also delicious !! My favorite!!

Good succeed...
