"It is certainly possible to make fruit purees at home. However, if you are going to be making chocolates commercially (i.e., for sale), then you probably want to purchase them because they will be consistently the same taste and sweetness which is…"

Fruit Puree

Does anyone know how to make fruit puree to make ganache fillings with? Or is it better to buy them in the grocery store? Do grocery stores carry quality fruit purees? Thanks a bunch!

"I have purchased old (as in pre-Spanish conquest) metates from auction houses on eBay. Not all that expensive, considering."

Cacao Canoes, Sacks, Bales, Tools, etc.

Does anyone know where I can purchase canoes, tools, or sacks used by ancient Aztecs to cultivate, harvest, transport or harvest cacao? I know it's a long shot, but hoping someone would know, thanks! This is a photo of a cacao canoe I took while at the Bruges Chocolate Museum.See More

"Vinotemp manufactures a large selection of coolers and cooing units. I'm sure at least one of them will suit your needs. I use a small (12 bottle) cooler myself, but more as a cooling cabinet than as couverture storage. I would recommend…"

"Hi Kate -- You are correct in that conditions for Wine Storage and Chocolate are pretty much the same. I don't of any specific wine/chocolate storage "machines" to store the chocolate. If I hear of anything, I will let you know.…"

Best wine cooler to store couverture?

Hi, I'm new here at the Chocolate Life. Just wondering how home chefs/chocolatiers store their couverture? I know it has to be stored at around 50-62 degrees Fahrenheit, I guess a wine cooler or cellar is my best bet. Does anyone have a wine cooler they use to store couverture or chocolate at home that they can recommend? Something not too huge or too tiny. Thanks!
