Topic: Slightly OT roasting/brewing Ramon nuts? (5 msgs / 88 lines)
1) From: Edward Bourgeois
I was at a local food system meeting today and talked with someone who
has Ramon nuts that he said can be roasted and brewed that produces a
coffee like drink. He's planning on bringing some over to try roasting
on my homebuilt. Anyone have any experience with these? He said they
grow on a high canopy tree.

This site:http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/learn/ramonnut.phpsays the nuts can be made into a beverage that tastes of coffee & chocolate.
But this sounds like they don't need to be roasted.

In wiki it says when stewed they taste like mashed potato and when
roasted brings out the chocolate kinda like what roasting does to
coffee.

I spoke with someone else who makes honey mead and is interested in
trying to add coffee in the process.

Espresso makes mead tolerable. Espresso and honey is tasty to begin with.  Makes mead foam up like one of those volcano things we do for our kids, too. But I just added a fresh shot to a half glass, I don't know about during brewing.
