Thanks to Guilherme (ruvid.net/show-UCqKjl-xepqcSTkJGR9pq_vQ) for taking us around Brazil.
BELÉM, BRAZIL - The state of Pará in the northern part of Brazil, still located in the Amazon jungle, is one of the most gorgeous and food rich states of Brazil. Along with massive river fish, one of the main foods grown in and around Belem is açaí (acai), the small berries from the acai palm tree. #Brazil #AmazonRainforest #acai
Before going across the river to a harvest açaí (acai) and for a full Amazon jungle food meal, we stopped at the Belem market and bought a chunk of fihote, a type of Amazon catfish.
We met up with our friends, and took the boat to Cumbu island, to meet with relatives of Lana, who arranged for us to have an entire açaí (acai) food experiences.
When you think about açaí (acai), unless you’re from Belem, you probably think about a sweet fruit bowl covered with fruits, and possibly some granola mixed in. That’s all I knew about acai before coming to Belem. But in the state of Para, acai is eaten totally different. The berries are ground into a paste, and eaten as a main dish with a full meal - typically with fried fish.
One of the reasons why açaí (acai) is eaten this way only in the northern Amazon rainforest is because açaí (acai) really doesn’t travel or export fresh. It spoils so fast, within hours of being ground. So typically they sweeten it and make it into a sorbet to get around the world - which is why it’s then prepared into a sweet fruity açaí (acai) bowl. That’s not bad at all, just totally different from how they eat it in the Amazon.
Along with an outstanding acai feast, we also had maniçoba, another staple of Para food - cassava leaves cooked for 7 days to take out the poison and cooked with a variety of pig parts. It’s a wonderful dish.
It was an amazing learning experience, and I’ll never think of açaí (acai) the same again.

I like this guy & I think he does a great job ! ...but I don't like his face gestures ...they are " so exagerated " every single time ! ...I am sure there are times that he doesn't really like something...or is " disgusting" ....🤣

Mark mentions near the end that Acai is considered a "superfood". I think like red grapes, black cherries and blueberries having the blue and purple color of the skin is very high in antioxidants'anti-aging' properties.

We had those small peppers in Peru as well. They are extremely hot. Some call them “monkey penises”. You placed a few in a jar with vinegar and vegetables and after a few days everything in the jar was spicy hot

eu adoro açaí o mais puro possível, mas mesmo não pegando aqueles acompanhamentos (leite condensado, paçoca, etc.) o gosto de guaraná fica forte :'/ Eu adoraria misturar com farinha de mandioca, farinha é tipo minha comida preferida

Cassava leaf is not poisonous, if it was, animals will be in trouble because they eat it raw. It is very delicious, takes about an hour 30mins to be fully cooked. I don't know about 7days
