Geléia de Mocotó = Cow hoof jelly. Not so appetizing an image, stewed hooves. However, it’s fantastic for you–loaded with tons of vitamins for strong hair, skin, and bones. I was sure that no one was going to convince me to try this anytime soon.
From the time that I wrote that I wasn’t so sure about this food to when I tried it a whole three weeks have passed. I’m a push-over when it comes to trying new foods, it seems.
It’s pretty damn good. This is the stuff that I tried, and it also comes in a clearer, more molasses-jelly colored version. The flavor was sweet and caramel, the texture was smooth and firm like cheese, and it had a smoky aftertaste and left a hearty feeling in my stomach that reminded me that I was eating something ridiculously nutritious. I’d eat it again, although I don’t think that I can eat more than two slices at a time.
Hi there! Just saw your comment on my blog and I’ve been briefly reading through yours! Love it!
Thanks! I hope you keep reading. I enjoyed your blog as well; it’s nice to read another voice from Mina’s Gerais.
is there a specific time to eat this?
No, I see it for sale in the market year-round. And it seems to be more of a snack than something that accompanies a meal. So… Eat it whenever you please! 🙂
This is an old post. However, I want to learn how to make geleia de mocoto in US.
I made some in the past, it was greasy. How to make without the fat from the bones?
