We are picking the cocoa from the few remaining trees in Corn Buck,
fermenting the beans in a bucket, which seems to work fine,
and then drying them in the sun. Xena has kindly allowed us to use her house as the drying shed. T has shown me how to 'parch' or roast them, over the fire and then we will grind them and make cocoa balls for cocoa tea.
...but secretly, I would really like to do this......
