Peruvian Chicha Morada Drink Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
As a Native Peruvian, we normally don't put apples, and lime is more customary than lemon. Purple corn is usually ordered online or found in Fiesta, a store in Texas. We use 2 cloves actually NOT brown-sugar I wish I could everyone on making Authentic Chicha Morada.

Too spicy and citrusy. Reduce cloves to 3 - not spoonfuls, three whole cloves. My mother-in-law doesn't use citrus in her chicha but says her mother-in-law juiced 1 lime directly into hers.

A truly purple drink! This is like wassail, very spicy! The amount of brown sugar does not overwhelm you, so this is a comfortable sweetness! I should have put the cinnamon and cloves into a cheesecloth ball so that I could take it out and continue cooking the corn (in a new, separate recipe!) for several more hours, until it puffed out like popcorn. At that point, the cooked corn can be eaten plain or in stews. Thanks for the recipe!
