Description

Description

It is to the Aztecs that we owe our knowledge of the marvellous Cacao tree. They roasted the beans from the trees in pots and crushed them between stones to form a paste. This paste was then diluted with water and spiced with annatto, anise seeds, red peppers and cinnamon. The mixture was beaten and stirred slowly over a fire until it became a bubbling liquid. This was truly a food of the Gods as the name Theobroma suggests. The Greek theos means god and broma means food  hence Food of the Gods.
