Training Again

I'm now training my 4th "daughter" here on the mission. My newest companion is Hermana Bermudez. She is actually from a place right here in Salvador that is only about 10 or 15 minutes from where we live. She is serious and quiet but has a strong spirit.
Here is yet another strange fruit found here--semilla de paterna. The white fuzzy part if edible and sweet like a fruit.The green inner part you fry up with salt and lemon and is like a legume.

  1. The fruit is called "PATERNA", The green thingy inside the white, cotton candy like coccon is the "SEMILLA". These semillas are boiled and when they are tender, you drain the water, let them cool down and then you put lemon juice, salt and if you like you can add hot sauce. They are an explosion to your palate! Try them, you'll like them.
