A look inside the box.
The information guide contains information about each product in the box. There are also recipes to go with the products in the box.
Try the World gave an overview about Portugal and included a map where you can find all the products.
One side of the information card had a list of everything in the box.
The back of the information card contained recipes and meal ideas.
It Apple and Cinnamon Black Tea This tea is made with ingredients from the mountains of Serra da Estrela and is a fruity black tea. My husband really loves black tea, so I think he will really like this.
Case Lucena Cookies These cookies use a traditional Portuguese recipe and have a sweet lemon flavor. These tasted fantastic with a glass of milk.
Briosa Gourmet Codfish in Olive Oil This is one of Portugal’s best known foods. The paper on the outside, is made to look like hydraulic tiles (pigments pressed into cement).
RARE by Quinta de Jugais Pumpkin and Hazelnut Jam Pumpkin jam is one of the most popular jams in Portugal. I love hazelnut, so this really sounds good. This would be great on a biscuit or toast.
Caase de Prisca Caramelized Onions with Port Wine I love onions in pretty much any form and these caramelized onions in wine will make a great appetizer. I think this would also be good to top a steak.
Hands on Earth Sea Salt and Lemon This sea salt is mixed with lemon and is free from pesticides and chemicals. This would be great to season fish or poultry.
Olivais de Sul Extra Virgin Olive Oil I am not a big cook, but I use EVOO often. The olives that are used in this oil are grown in central Portugal.
Paladin Piri Piri Hot Sauce This sauce first came to Europe in the 15th century from Christopher Columbus. I like spicy foods, but I have to be careful when I cook with it, because my family isn’t a fan.
Final Thought I love getting Try the World, because I get exposed to such new and unique foods. I am really excited to cook with the caramelized onions and the EVOO. I think my husband is really going to enjoy the black tea and jam. If you want to subscribe, use this link with the code SBMOM15 to save 15%. Try the World also has a snack subscription.
