-- Original message -------------- <br>&gt; <br><br>&gt; Just received a
ripe chocolate [Theobroma cacao] fruit from a <br>&gt; friend of
<br>&gt; mine in Puerto Rico. After taking its picture and <br>&gt;
whacking it open, I <br>&gt; scooped out the seeds and put them in a
glass <br>&gt; of more-or-less pure <br>&gt; water to ferment. The seeds
are incased in <br>&gt; tart membranes that are most <br>&gt; easily
removed by fermenting. When <br>&gt; the fermentation is finished, I'm
<br>&gt; going to plant a few of the <br>&gt; seeds to see if I can grow
a chocolate tree <br>&gt; in my front patio <br>&gt; microclimate [doubt
it] and roast and grind the rest <br>&gt; to make raw <br>&gt;
chocolate. This sounds like a grammar school science <br>&gt; project;
too <br>&gt; bad [just kidding] I don't have that age kids any more.
