Thought you'd like to see where some of the beans from Mexico are coming from. This field is owned and worked by Abel and his family and they grow Parraleños and San Franciscanos. The San Franciscanos looked just like our Rio Zapes, and they taste the same, which is fine as our yield here in California was dismal this year.
In this shot, I'm with Yunuen, Gabriel and Anotonio (all from Xoxoc) and members of Abel's family.
For lunch, we had bowlsful of San Franciscanos, whole and refried and stacks and stacks of tortillas, made from corn that they had grown. I can't tell you how happy I was to eat that meal and meet the farmers who love their heritage beans.
