Born Sweet

Born Sweet by Jose Moreno

So many foods (especially produce) here in Guatemala are forms or variations on foods that are eaten all over the world, while others are specific types of fruits/vegetables/herbs that are only grown here. Can anyone describe what is seen in this bowl and what the flavors might be like?

    Manzanillas!  I think it´s some variety of crabapple.  They´re a bit sour, so the only way people eat them is “en dulce” like in the picture.  If you were at any of the markets before Christmas, it´s the orange fruit sown into strands that is used to decorate Nativity scenes.  It has a rather unique and wonderful smell, but not one that I could relate to any other fruit.
