Tree specialties | New worlds of aroma
Trees as suppliers of food? Today, we think primarily of cultivated fruit trees, which provide us with a plentiful supply of cherries, mirabelles, apples, pears, plums, lemons, oranges, mangoes and many other fruits.
Hazelnuts and walnuts as well as almonds, coconuts or cashews are also at the top of the speciality menu. Trees provide sweet syrups, known worldwide for the Canadian maple with its wonderful maple syrup, without which pancakes would hardly be conceivable. Cocoa and coffee also grow on trees and provide the morning energy kick. In addition, many other fruits and nuts thrive on trees worldwide, which are often only known regionally. For example, the Asian jackfruit, the largest tree fruit in the world, which can weigh up to 40 kg. It is becoming increasingly popular in Europe as a vegan meat substitute, because the fine consistency of its flesh is remotely reminiscent of chicken meat.
But trees have much more to offer than their fruits and nuts, and especially European trees such as oak, beech, maple, lime, pine, fir or spruce promise downright culinary highlights if you know how.
