As the days have gotten warmer I found myself with a hankerin’ for Mote Con Huesillo.
It’s essentially a summer “beverage” even though it definitely requires more than a straw.
It’s basically “mote” which is husked wheat,
“huesillo” (dried peaches) that have been cooked with water, sugar and cinnamon.
It’s delicious. So the only place I know to get it in LA is here.
But last time I was there I saw this: And I got the idea to make up a batch myself.
I picked up some Trader Joe’s Dried White Peaches. Soaked them and cooked them. Using a recipe I got online.
Turned out pretty delicious. I especially like it for breakfast.
