Childhood outside the box

Somewhat obscure, cloudy, is the childhood memory of a sweet dish which was always served in accompaniment, never as a piece for focus. The inner skin of grapefruits (oranges or limes, too) would be cocked for hours with spices and sugar, until it became syrup.

Another memory is of a more common, children’s joy, namely, the piragua, as I know it from my time in Puerto Rico.

Taking such memories in combination some days ago, I imagined — first of all — a reconstruction of the piragua. Rosemary, ginger, lemon, and eucalyptus infused some water which I froze for a week.

This shaved ice now accompanies a blueberry grapefruit inner skin wine reduction.
