Desserts from Chile: Mote con Huesillos




15 whole dried peaches
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup of sugar
¾ pound of wheat


Put the peaches in water during all night before and be sure water covers them. Next day put this mixture in a pan, add the sugar and the cinnamon and cook it until tender. Let it cool in the pan.

In a pan put the wheat and eucalyptus ashes and boil it all to loosen the wheat skins. Drain it and with your hands rub the wheat to remove the skin. Wash the wheat again and boil it once more, for 15 minutes, drain again and cool.

In a serving dish, place the cooked peaches with some of its juice and sprinkle it with the mote. Serve it with white or rose wine, either of them, and you’ll enjoy this dessert! - South American Foods and Desserts
