The story of underground corn
Traditionally, in Native American culture, large fire pits are used for burying and slow-roasting large batches of corn as a method of preservation for the winter months. The corn can then be eaten freshly roasted (often times with honey) or dried. Underground corn can be found in most indigenous households. Our Chefs, David and Rey, have put their heads (and traditions) together to incorporate this roasting technique here on property. It can be found in our corn pancake (served with the Smoked Brisket and Egg) and fresh, Rio Grande Valley Calabacitas.
