Pão de Açucar, Rio de Janeiro

Pão de Açucar, Rio de Janeiro

What to buy here: Brazil Nuts | Brazilian Coffee | Goiabada.

GOIABADA: A staple of the Brazilian table and the Portuguese-speaking world, goiabada is guava paste that’s been cooked down with sugar and a bit of pectin. It appeared in Brazil when Portuguese settlers decided to use guava as a substitute ingredient to make marmalade. Typically, goiabada is sold in round, flat cans and its firm consistency makes slicing easy. At more upmarket delicatessens they can be found in wooden containers shaped like a brick. One of the ways that Brazilians like to consume goiabada is by mixing it with cheese to accompany coffee. The best places to buy goiabada are supermarkets. They sell them cheap and offer a wide range of options. Open Monday to Friday from 9am to 7pm and Saturdays from 9am to 2pm.
