Makes 4 cups, recipe by Shazzie
lots of you say to us "What do you do with these things?", so I thought I’d give you a recipe. The ingredents are all easy to find these days, but if you don’t have a few of the ingredients, don’t worry. Make do with what you have!
Add all these ingredients to a large cafetier, then pour on almost-boiled water. Allow to steep for ten minutes before pressing and pouring. Add a splash of agave nectar to sweeten if you wish. Then enjoy it all with your most loved ones.
You can also use this wonderful ingredient in cold drinks. Soak a teaspoon overnight in a pint of water, then strain and drink, or sweeten with Agavenectar first. Like this, it also makes a great base for smoothies. Please don’t eat these straight, they’re hard and could break your teeth! They’re always best soaked and strained to get the purple stuff out!
About purple corn
Purple corn, a variety of Zea mays, is an Andean crop from low valleys locally called maiz morado. Purple corn can be found mostly in Peru, where it is cultivated in the coast, as well as in lands almost ten thousand feet high. There are different varieties of purple corn, and all of them originated from an ancestral line called Kculli, still cultivated in Peru. The Kculli line is very old, and ancient objects in the shape of these particular ears of corn have been found in archeological sites at least 2,500 years old in places in the central coast, as well as among the ceramics of the Mochica culture.
Purple corn contains substantial amounts of phenolics and anthocyanins, among other phytochemicals. Its main colorant is cianidin-3-b-glucosa. People of the Andes make a refreshing drink from purple corn called "chicha morada" which is now recognized as a nutritive powerhouse due to its phenolic content. Phenolics are known to have many bioactive and functional properties. Research shows that crops with the highest total phenolic and anthocyanin content also have the highest antioxidant activity.
Anthocyaninins are a type of complex flavonoid that produce blue, purple or red colors. Under UK law, we are not allowed to tell you anything about what anthocyanins do. We encourage you to look on the Internet for some really exciting information.
Purple Corn has higher antioxidant capacity and antiradical kinetics than blueberries and higher or similar anthocyanin and phenolic contents.
