Another "a-ha" moment - São Paulo

I've lived in Brazil now a total of 9 years. I complain periodically about the lack of berries here--yes, yes, there are strawberries but just about everything else is imported. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries--oops, not a berry but I lump it in with my favorite fruits. They're all imported, and generally from Chile.

I have never known that "groselha" translates as "currants". When my husband has ordered popsicles on the beach that were "groselha", I thought well that sounds yucky and didn't even try it. All this time I've been missing out on currants.

 Live and learn.
