Dried uchuvas are Colombia’s craisin. Like cranberries, the sour taste of uchuvas persists after drying.
That may be were the similarities end. Uchuvas are about the size of large grapes, but many of their dried kin maintain a shape that is larger than raisins. Uchuvas also contain a number of small seeds that give dried uchuvas a slight crunch when chewed. Fresh uchuvas are a bright yellow-orange, but when dried they become dark orange to red with the portion nearest to their former stems maintaining a yellow color.
These dried uchuvas were purchased at Casa Lis on the Septima in downtown Bogotá.
