Once cooked I divided them into three portions and added coloring to each one, stirred gently and let them cook for 2 minutes over low heat until they absorbed the color. I removed and finished.

Ya cocidos los dividí en tres porciones y agregué colorante a cada una, removí suavemente y dejé cocinar por 2 minutos a fuego bajo hasta que absorbieron el color. Retiré y terminado.

I have never seen something like this before. It looks like a tasty and fun thing to eat. For me it's the first time I've heard of this. Is it popular in your culture? I love learning about things people eat in the world. Very nice and delicious looking!


Hi @carolynstahl thanks for stopping by, in Venezuela candied fruits are used to fill breads, cakes and sweets in general, at Christmas time they are used a lot in panettones that also include raisins. Apart from the patilla, fruits such as orange and lechosa are used (if it is green it will give better results, in this case the pulp is used and not the shell as in the patilla). greetings!
