Ramona Farms, Pinole

Pinole – Our Pinole, known among the Pima as Haaki Chui or S-bahi chui (roasted flour) is a wholesome traditional snack food made from our carefully parched heirloom Pima Club Wheat Berries OR our carefully parched heirloom Pima 60 Day┬áCorn which are finely stone-ground. Delicious on ice cream too! Try the corn pinole as a coffee creamer. Both can be mixed with water, milk or fruit juice. Pinole makes a delicious, satisfying and sustaining drink. Back in the days when most travel was on foot or horseback, Pinole was the preferred traveling food as it was easy to carry, needed no preparation and was satisfying and nutritious. This fast food was preferred by Pima runners who carried the news from village to village.

Add Pinole to smoothies for wholesome protein and carbohydrate nutrition.
