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.
