peruvian corn - pisac, peru

Is one of the most widely-consumed foodstuffs in Peruvian cuisine. It has been planted in Peru since at least 1200 BC. Peruvian corn is also the main ingredient of the chicha morada (drink made from purple corn) or chicha de jora (fermented corn beer) and the sweet purple corn jelly called mazamorra.
