Try the World Box Review + Jabuticaba Caipirinha

Try the World Brazil

I recently had the opportunity to review the Brazil box from a great company called Try the World for 37 cooks. I thought that I would also share the box here with y’all. Head over to 37 cooks for my guava cheese ice cream recipe it is super delicious!

Try the World is a subscription box that you can receive monthly or bimonthly. Every box features artisanal products from a specific country. The box arrives with a handy little card that tells you about the items in your box where they originate and some suggested ways to use the items. I received the Brazil Box to review. Try the World also has an online magazine in which they feature additional recipes and tips to plan a party using the box that you received. They also have a playlist on Spotify that correlates to the country of the box you received, perfect to set the atmosphere while you cook or have a party. Churrasco (BBQ) is something that Brazil is well known for and there are several items in this box to throw a great churrasco party. These are the items that arrived in my Brazil box.

Churrasco Sauce: A BBQ sauce from an acclaimed restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. Suggested uses include spreading it on pizza dough or adding it to a sandwich.

Parana Coffee Grounds: A single origin coffee bean from the Parana region. The roasting process leaves it with caramel and hazelnut flavor. I can’t wait to make iced coffee. It can also be added to baked goods.

Churrasco Spice Mix: A dry rub or seasoning for a BBQ. This mixture includes garlic, onion, paprika, parsley, thyme, rosemary, and turmeric among others.

Try the World Brazil Smoked Churrasco Spice Ribs

My husband smoked ribs using the rub – they were a huge hit. He added a little brown sugar and salt to the rub.

Jabuticaba Jam: A black berry that is unique to Brazil made into jam, I love that this jam is made with a small amount of sugar. It can be mixed into yogurt, added to thumbprint cookies or a caipirinha (I will be making those often!).

Pao De Queijo Mix: Brazilian cheese bread mix. The bread is crunchy on the outside and doughy and cheesy in the center it is a breakfast and snack food in Brazil.

Brazil Nut Cookies: These cookies are sweet, crunchy and completely addicting. I may have wanted to hide them from my kids, but I was nice and shared. They did not last long.

Goiabada: is guava paste. Suggested uses include melting it into a meat glaze or serve with a semi soft cow’s milk cheese. I like to melt it with butter into a glaze for carrots or make guava cheese turnovers.

Brazilian Nuts Spread: This is a mixture of three nuts; peanut, cashew and baru. Baru nuts are native to Brazil and contain over 25% protein! Suggested uses include a PB&J or sliced apples. I used it on banana slices with a little melted chocolate and froze them for a nice little snack.

Try the World Brazil Caipirinha

Jabuticaba Caipirinha
Serves 2
These were super good and I am now on the hunt to find Jabuticaba jam. I am planning to make a virgin version for my kids this week.

1 Lime, cut into Wedges
4 Mint Sprigs
4 teaspoons Jabuticaba Jam
2 teaspoons Sugar
4 oz Cachaca
2 Cups Ice

1. Divide the lime, mint, jam and sugar between two glasses and muddle. A wooden spoon works great if you do not have a muddler. At this point you can strain it although I tend to skip that step!

2. Add the Cachaca and ice and serve with a straw. Enjoy and repeat!
