West Elm Mango Wood Coffee Table

West Elm Mango Wood Coffee Table – In a previous entry we presented an Ecuador chair with a summary of all research and development work on two Ecuadorian products, plantain (Musa paradisiaca) and physalis (Physalis peruviana L.). On this occasion we are going to introduce only one product which is physalis or uvilla as they colloquially call it in their native country, Ecuador.

Yuvila (Physalis peruviana L.) is a plant of the Solanaceae family and its fruits grow and ripen inside its calyx. Its origin is unclear but it is believed to have been in the South American Andes such as Peru (Legue, 1974), Brazil (CRFG, 1997) and Ecuador (Bartholomus et al., 1990).

Worldwide, the main exporting countries are: Zimbabwe, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Kenya, South Africa, Peru, Bolivia and Mexico.

It is a fruit considered as a “functional food” because according to Herman (2004) it contains immune-stimulating, anticancer, antibacterial, antiviral and diuretic properties. In addition, medicinal properties such as purifying the blood, reducing albumin in the kidneys, relieving throat problems, strengthening the optic nerve, cleaning cataracts and controlling amebiasis (Corporación Colombia Internacional, Universidad de los Andes and the Department of National Planning, 1994) . It is a source of provitamin A and vitamin C (Hermann, 1994b).

Inside we are working intensively on fermentation. Therefore, the first development was to ferment Uvilla for later analysis through surveys conducted on a total of 100 people, both professionals in the field of gastronomy and actual consumers. Tasting is an effective type of tasting with the simple objective of eliciting a positive or negative response to the acceptance of the fermented fruit.

We were inspired by a Japanese technique and custom of lactically fermenting fruit, such as the well-known “Umeboshi”. The word “ume” or Japanese apricot is actually a plum (prunnus mume, armeniaca mume) literally translated as “dried plum”. Umeboshi is traditionally used with umeboshis to make umeshu macerated liquor.

In the case of umeboshi, it is a Japanese apricot that is grown in early summer when it starts to change its color from green to yellow and is preserved for a few months by salting and lactic fermentation. They are then dehydrated in the sun and kept semi-dried. They are usually red in color because they are fermented with red shiso leaves, but they also exist without shiso. The most common way to eat it in Japan is as bacha in a tea cup, desalted in tempura or, most notably, on top of a bowl of rice (hinomau bento, referring to the Japanese flag). (Hosking, R., 2001)

The objective of this development is to obtain a fermented physalis like Japanese product called “Umeboshi” of great gastronomic value, promote its use and disseminate it as a marketable Andean product throughout the world.

It is called a cellular process where glucose is used to obtain energy, in which glucose is partially oxidized and where the waste product is lactic acid, traditionally used mainly in dairy products such as yogurt, viilles, crème fraîche, lambic-type occurs in production. Beer as well as vegetables and fruits such as sauerkraut, kimchi or umeboshi.

Lactic fermentation occurs in three stages; Initially, anaerobic bacteria such as Klebsiella and Enterobacter function more strongly in fermentation, creating an acidic environment favorable for the next bacteria. The second stage begins when the environment is too acidic for most bacteria and Leuconostoc mesenteroides and other Leuconostoc spp. They take control. In the third stage, various lactobacilli ferment any remaining sugars and lower the pH.

These bacteria have the great characteristic of being halophilic, unlike many other microorganisms that die in salty conditions, that’s why lactic fermentation is always related to the percentage of salt, we always talk about at least 2% – 3% of salt. to the total weight to be fermented. In this case, in addition to creating a selective environment for lactic bacteria to live, salt removes water from products by osmosis, accelerating fermentation. In the case of “Umeboshi” it is traditionally made with 20%-25% salt, but it can be found in the market from 4%.

Traditionally, for this type of fermentation, glass or wooden jars are used, always taking care that the product is completely covered with liquid so that the product does not come into direct contact with oxygen, but in aerobic fermentation, which creates a vacuum. The bag is currently used. (always omitting oxygen) to facilitate handling.

Different percentages of salt were tested: 2%, 3% and 6%, this range was chosen because the fermentation products and in previous tests they accepted the range of salt. All were vacuum bagged with 85% vacuum.

Fermentation was carried out in a refrigerator at 4ºC for 2 months, it was done this way because in tests with other products, carrying out cold fermentation gives better results from an organoleptic point of view, improving taste and smell.

Tests done with high amounts of salt are too salty for us and the specific taste of physalis is hidden behind the intensity of the salt. Tests with lower salt intake had better acceptance. However, the first tests can be used after soaking and desalting the product, insisting that part of its flavor and aroma is lost in this soaking.

We can say that fermented uvila can be used in the same way as “Umeboshi” as a part of garnishes, sauces, etc. or as a simple snack, due to its very similar acidity and saltiness characteristics. In this part, if we distinguish the fermented product from the fermentation liquid extracted from uvilla, a transparent and salty liquid that can be used as any fermented sauce, which enhances any preparation such as dressings, broths, sauces, marinades, etc.

After many months of development of fermented products and various organoleptic and consumer tests, we found that the most accepted was 3% salt, with 80% acceptance in product acceptance testing done on 100 people, other percentages of salt 6% and 8% if they accepted in smaller quantities. came, at least 12% were accepted.

This opens up great possibilities for us in various lactically fermented fruits. We have tried different fruits and vegetables looking for other uses for lactic acid fermentation, in this case with very good nutritional and gastronomic results for use in restaurants and on a daily basis.
