Details

The Pueblo of Santa Ana is a Native American tribe with reservation lands that include a strip of New Mexico's fertile Rio Grande valley. The members of Santa Ana have lived just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico, since at least the early 1500s. Agriculture has been central to the survival of the Santa Ana community for over 500 years. Blue corn, the most treasured grain of Pueblo tribes, is the prominent crop of Santa Ana. The Tamayame people not only grow the corn, but also operate a stone mill to create several products under the brand name Tamaya Blue.

This bar is inspired by the traditional corn and masa-based beverage Atole of Mesoamerican origin, where toasted corn or masa is blended with water or milk, piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), vanilla, and optional spices, fruits, or chocolate. The consistency of this beverage can range from a thick porridge to a thin liquid. Here the blue corn has been refined into a traditional white chocolate that retains just enough texture to enhance the perception of the delicate and floral qualities of the heirloom corn.
