Purhepecha Corn with Piloncillo

Semana Santa / Holy Week
Plazuela San Francisco, Patzcuaro

The Plazuela de San Francisco is blanketed with the smoke of fires in the late afternoon and evening. Purhepecha women cook tamales and corn with piloncillo (a coarse, flavorful brown sugar) until the corn kernels are plump and tender--the corn is tasty despite its formidable appearance.
