How to make it

  • Roast corn in a moderately heated oven until the corn is a light brown
  • color. Grind the corn (coarse) and place in a large heavy crock. Add all
  • the water, citrus peel, canela, and piloncillo. Cover and let the
  • mixture ferment. Fermentation will take about 8 to 9 days during cool
  • weather or 4 to 5 days in warm weather. Strain through a cheesecloth,
  • call your closest friends, and drink right away.
  • - note: "The old Apache recipe calls for soaking corn and sprouting it
  • until the seedlings are 1/2 inch long, grinding the sprouts, and boiling
  • them. The resulting mash was then sweetened with mesquite flour or
  • saguaro syrup and allowed to ferment in a brewing jar that was never
  • washed so as to retain the organisms for fermentation. The finished
  • product had to be drunk within a few hours after it was prepared or the
  • alcohol became acetic acid, giving the beverage a sour taste."
