Tropical Traditions Organic Atchara Review and Giveaway

I've got another great Tropical Traditions product to share with you today! They sent me a jar of their Organic Atchara to try.



Atchara is a traditional Philippine fermented dish made with unripe raw green papaya, fresh raw ginger root, and other raw ingredients in a vinegar base. Tropical Traditions uses their unique Coconut Water Vinegar in their Atchara. A note on Tropical Traditions' web site says:

Tropical Traditions Atchara is best used as a condiment during meal times. The coconut water vinegar should NOT be discarded after all the papaya has been consumed. It can be used as any other vinegar, such as part of a salad dressing. Note: The coconut water vinegar in this Atchara is VERY strong! Dilute with purified water to reach the lower acidity level of standard vinegars, if desired.


I will definitely say that the vinegar in the Atchara is very strong. I opened the jar when I got it, thinking I'd put it on my bratwurst. I took one taste and closed the jar up and put it back in the refrigerator. I quickly contacted Sanrda at Tropical Traditions for some tips on how to better use it. She mentioned that some people will dilute Atchara with a little purified water and sweeten it lightly with honey. You can use it as a relish on organic hot dogs and bratwurst sausages, and even top some homemade soups & chili with it.

So, off I went and soaked a little of the Atchara in some water to dilute the vinegar. This helped a lot! I was able to put it on some grilled brats and it tasted great! I usually love sour kraut on my brats. Atchara reminded me a little bit of sour kraut. I can't wait to try it in the Atchara Bison Burgers recipe found on Tropical Traditions' web site.

Buy It: Organic Atchara retails for $20.00 at Tropical Traditions.
