Our Milpa

Picking maize corn in our milpa. Most of the maize will be left to dry to use for tortilla dough and feed for our animals but around this time people here pick the fresh maize to boil (called "elotes"). Sometimes they are prepared by smothering them with mayonaise, chili powder, and cheese but in Zacango people mostly just eat them as is immediately after they are boiled. Yum!

My mouth just waters.....We have big starchy corn here that people love. It took a while for me to realize how amazing it was. And so now, all I can think of is eating boiled choclo. Good thing it's only 2 hours til supper!
