So I stopped by today to pick up some bottles of those hot tiny pickled peppers (pimenta)
Remembering a post about someone wanting to make feijoada, I ask if they had any frozen Brazilian sausages. This takes quite a while as my Portuguese is not as good as the owners English and there are gaps on his side where sausage isn't in his English vocabulary and the proper pronunciation of feijoada still isn't in mine.
Then he mentions that starting next week, a friend of his who recently moved here from Brazil would be making fresh Brazilian sausage as soon as the permits went through.
Then he said they were going to put together feijoeda kits so there would be all the fresh meat and stuff in there and people could bring it home and stew it up. Snouts, ears, and tails were mentioned.
I'm up for the sausage and I'll probably buy some of that as soon as my arteries clear a bit from a recent chorizo crawl. However, even if it is chopped up and ready to throw in a pot, I'm thinking I'm not a home-feijoda maker.
However, anyone who might be interested, this sounds kind of cool. The owner said to call next week to check.
