Krak Chocolate - Juniper Berry - Milk Chocolate
North of Venezuela and between the Caribbean islands of Granada and Barbedos lies the small island of St Vincent and the Grenadines where the cocoa of this chocolate comes from. The cocoa grows scattered throughout the island and is managed by the St Vincent Cocoa Company. They manage 250 hectares of land and buy the cocoa from around 100 farmers. The cocoa grows among maize, banana and ginger plants and in the shade of coconut and mahogany trees.
Krak Chocolate is the company of bean-to-bar chocolate maker Mark Schimmel. Whereas most chocolatiers and confectioners use melted factory chocolate, Mark masters the entire process himself.
Picking cocoa beans, by vintage, of particular origin, roasting and rolling the chocolate creates unique flavours you won't find in supermarket chocolate bars
Chocolate with Juniper
The berry-shaped cone fruit is used to flavour gin, gin, aquavit and Bénédictine. The drink gin gets its name from this plant. The name "genever" comes from the juniper berry. Dried cone fruit is used as a condiment in, for example, game marinades. Sauerkraut is also traditionally seasoned with juniper. The dried berries can often be bought in supermarkets. Besides the berries, the leaves are also used, for example when grilling fish.
