WHPOS-8

Description:

Corn (Maize)is an honored crop that was considered “a gift of the gods” by the Indians of Mexico. The Pueblo Indians and their ancestors the Anasazi relied on corn, beans, squash and Chiles for sustenance. These early crops became firmly entrenched in the culture, forming the basis of New Mexican cuisine even before the Spanish arrived. Posole (po-So-lay) corn is prepared by soaking hard kernels of field corn in powdered lime and water. When the corn kernels have swollen, the liquid is allowed to evaporate and the kernels to dry. Giant White Posole has a creamy yellow-white color and when cooked a flavor that is intense and earthy with a soft yet firm texture. These hearty kernels are about 1 1/2 cm in width and length and add a unique corn flavor to stews, soups and casseroles. Posole is the main ingredient in a spicy corn stew that is known as a ceremonial dish for celebrating life’s blessings. Posole is perfect in stew, gumbo and soups.
