I wanted to create a uniquely Amazonian sauce with some of these aji charapita pods. In the Amazon region of Peru, a fruit called cocona is typically used in conjunction with aji charapita pods for sauce.
Since cocona fruit is essentially impossible to get locally, I subbed it for naranjilla, which has a similar flavor as cocona. I also used some passion fruit pulp, to enhance that exotic aroma and flavor, plus to contribute a touch of sweetness.
This sauce came out seriously amazing! The flavor is uniquely exotic and spicy.
Wow! That sounds like a really nice, exotic sauce. I envy your creativity on that front. It looks like it came out really good!
