According to history, mojote was a staple food, like acorns were to the native americans. It has more calcium, and protein than beans and corn, and slightly less of iron. It is known by many other names all over the world. for example: Ochite, moj cuji, tunumi-tajan, etc. The women from the cooperative gave a workshop last year, with this information. They showed us how to make many things from the green mojote. The dried mojote is roasted and ground into flour and coffee-like drink. You can taste it at Martin's. My intention was to experience GATHERING it and bringing what we had up to the cooperative on Tuesday. They would teach us how to prepare the seed from scratch. Which turns out to be tedious work! I'm having a problem, however, in that my grand daughter missed her flight on friday and I am picking her up in PV on Sunday. I've heard 2 responses to my inquiry and need to communicate with these 2 people to arrange another time to gather the seeds. Please call today, if you are interested in going, so we can make it happen. I still think it's important to know about this food. We may have to be self- sufficient some day! 351-5398
