Another up-and-coming ingredient, Jabuticaba is native to southeastern Brazil. Jabuticaba’s color and delicate flavor impart unique qualities to jams, jellies, ice creams and wines. Jabuticaba makes a refreshing juice drink with a flavor that is compared to grape, blackcurrant, lychee, mangosteen and guava. Several potent antioxidant compounds have been isolated from Jabuticaba fruit, including jaboticabin, a depside unique to Jabuticaba.
