Let's talk a little bit about chocolate. Just where does it come from? Well, it comes from the seeds of the cacao tree. The seeds are bitter and first need to be fermented to develop flavor. Once this has happened, they are dried, cleaned, and roasted. Next the shells are removed. What remains in the cacao nib. Nibs are ground and liquified. This liquid is known as Chocolate Liquor. The liquid is then broken down more in cocoa solids and cocoa butter.
You will notice when you buy chocolate that there is a % on the package. The higher the % the more cocoa and less sugar, thus creating a more intense chocolate flavor. When you read that you can eating chocolate can be good for your health, this refers to chocolate that is at least 70% or higher in cocoa content.
