After harvesting, the long bean-like pods from the carob tree are cooked for a short time or roasted and then ground into carob powder (roasting enhances its chocolate-like flavor). Carob powder is an excellent choice for a cacao (chocolate) powder natural replacement. Carob powder can be used whenever your recipe calls for chocolate (cacao) or cocoa. To replace carob for cocoa, simply use the same amount of carob. To replace chocolate with carob, use approximately three tablespoons of carob powder for each square of chocolate that the recipe calls for.Today, carob is grown in other warm climates including Florida and the southwestern United States. The tree is drought tolerant, does well in direct sun, and can handle temperatures down to 18 degrees F. It has a broad, spreading form that makes it an ideal shade tree and can grow to a height of 50 feet. The leaves are dark green, glossy, and leathery. The tree bears fruit (carob pods) after six to eight years of growth, and can easily bear 100 pounds of pods per year by its twelfth year, increasing to an average of 200 to 250 pounds annually as the tree grows older. It can continue to bear fruit for 100 years. The pods are reddish-brown and can be up to a foot long.Carob can be used to make such items as cakes, cookies, candy, pudding, icing, bread, beverages, shakes, ice cream, muffins, fudge, and brownies. Carob is naturally sweet and requires much less sweetener when used in recipes. When replacing chocolate with carob in a recipe, use 3 tablespoons of carob powder plus 1 tablespoon of water for every ounce of unsweetened chocolate called for. When substituting cocoa powder, use an equal amount of carob powder. Remember to reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe because of the natural sweetness of carob.Carob powder is made from the pods of the carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua). The pods are ground into a powdered form and used as a chocolate substitute. Carob pods have vitamin A, B vitamins, and several important minerals. They are a good source of potassium. Carob has only one-third the calories of chocolate and is virtually fat-free (chocolate is half fat), Carob is rich in pectin, is non-allergenic, has abundant protein, and has no oxalic acid (which chocolate has), which interferes with absorption of calcium.","published_at":"2018-06-18T12:01:29-04:00","created_at":"2018-06-18T12:01:30-04:00","vendor":"vendor-unknown","type":"Powders","tags":[],"price":999,"price_min":999,"price_max":1999,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":10707440337011,"title":"4 oz.
