Nowadays, Cordia dichotoma berries are a ubiquitous addition to dishes in many restaurants; however, according to elderly people, the berries were considered a gourmet food to poorer people in ancient times. During the Cordia dichotoma berry season from May to June each year, it is a common sight in rural areas to see groups of women engaged in the lengthy berry-processing procedure. This traditional annual activity has the added benefit of promoting community cohesion.

Following planting, it takes two years for Cordia dichotoma trees to bear fruit. After that, one gets an annual harvest of berries, which take around 15 hours to process. The finished berries are incorporated into many recipes, including steamed fish, stir-fried bean curd sheet, scrambled eggs, and meatballs, or simply eaten directly. Mrs. Liao Su-jin (廖素金) said the production of Cordia dichotoma berries has been passed down from family to family over generations. Today, however, few people are willing to spend the time required in the lengthy production process, and so this ancient culinary cuisine is gradually disappearing.

破布子製作也可敦亲睦邻

破布子又称树子,长辈说这是古时穷人家桌上的美食佳餚,现在餐厅里面也都有破布子做的菜色。每年五、六月是破布子产期,破布子做起来耗工所以常会看到许多乡下婆婆、妈妈相邀一起做破布子联络感情。

破布子栽种至长果需两年的时间,採收过后每年都可以採,从採收到製作完成约要十五个小时,破布子可蒸鱼、炒豆包、炒蛋、做肉丸子,也可以直接吃。廖素金太太说做破布子也是一种传承,因为年轻人没人愿意去做,製作破布子的古法可能就会失传了。
