Raw and organic, made from Arriba Nacional cacao beans grown in Ecuador.
Is it really raw? Yes! Recent controversy over whether raw chocolate products were really raw lead us to investigate and we have found this product which our supplier assures us is really raw.
We also have raw cacao powder in 1kg bags.
How to make raw chocolate:
- 50g cacao butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut butter
- 4 tablespoons cacao powder
- 4 tablespoons lucuma powder
- 3 tablespoons carob powder
- 1 teaspoon yacon syrup or raw honey
First melt the cacao butter and coconut butter. I grate the cacao butter first so it melts quicker, and if it is summer the coconut butter might already be liquid. Place in a bowl and then put this bowl into a larger bowl of hot water which heats the butters gently and you won't end up cooking them! You can also get double boilers (bain marie or porringers) which does the same job but on the stove.
When the butters have completely liquefied (you might need to add more hot water), add the cacao, lucuma and carob powders a tablespoon at a time, stirring it in until dissolved. I shake the powder through a sieve to stop lumps. Next add the yacon syrup or honey, slowly pour it in while stirring.
Now pour the liquid chocolate into the moulds and put in the fridge to set.
