Emily from Chocolate in Context is hosting the 29th edition of Sugar High Friday, the brain child of Jennifer at the Domestic Goddess. The mission is simply prepare a recipe using an unrefined cacao product.
The most untreated cocoa I could find is the same I used for SHF #27. This organic farming cocoa is produced by the farm cooperative „El Ceibo“ in Bolivia. It is gepa’s objective to improve the living conditions of marginalized producers in the South by offering them a market chance in order to make it possible for them to take part in national and international marketing under fair conditions and to secure a decent living for them out of own efforts. Using this brand, I kill two birds with one stone: I get a tasty and delicious cocoa and I maintain the Fair Trade idea.
The difference between treated and untreated cocoa powder is obvious:
dark powder deoiled alkalised 11,0 % fat
I prepared a simple but tasty
