  • ½ pound cooked dried corn (maiz peto)
  • The skins of 1 small ripe pineapple
  • ½ pound panela or to your taste
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 12 cups water


  • Combine all the ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil, cover the pot, and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 60 minutes and then uncover the pot and continue cooking for 20 minutes more. 
  • Remove from heat and let cool. Take about half of the corn and place in the blender or food processor. Return it to the pot and mix well. Place in a non-reactive container or a clay pot for a stronger flavor.
  • Put in the fridge until completely cold. You can drink it immediately or let sit overnight for a more intense flavor.
