Okay, now that I've made Pindo jelly, and have discovered how delicious the little orange fruits are, I'd like to find a nutritional analysis of them. Any ideas where to go for such info? I tried a search for pindo palm fruit nutritional analysis and come up with nothing.
I just realized this afternoon that the fruit I used to make my jelly two days ago was probably not ripe enough. The jelly is good, but the next batch will be better I think, because I just tasted some riper, softer fruit that fell off the tree today and it's much sweeter. So I'll try making more! I also juiced some of the fruit, after pulling the pits out of each one (easier when the fruit is softer); it makes a lovely thick orange juice. It would juice well with apples I think, or blended with banana and/or mango.
What a fun experiment!!!
