Pure cacao beans would often be roasted alongside the maize during this process for additional flavor.
After roasting and smoking, the maize is ground by hand with a stone and pestle into a textured meal.
Next, delicious spices such as fresh canela (cinnamon) and pimiento (all spice) were added with a touch of sweetener.
Once ready, it would be combined with fresh milk and cooked slowly over the open fire for a thick, wholesome, deliciously filling porridge.
