Puchero 50% Mexico Soconusco Dark "Pine Nut" Bar
Mexican Chocolate, with natural, raw pine nut blended into the chocolate as a style of gianduja, from Tierra de Pinares, Castilla y León.
A pine (Pinus Pinea) takes between 20 and 30 years to produce pine nuts. A pine cone takes 3 years to form, first it is like a marble or “chota”, then a small ball or “perindola” and finally it grows and acquires its final size, with removable pine nuts. In the third year, the pine cones are taken down from the pine tree, stored, opened in the sun and the pine nuts are extracted from their shells, which are then processed in the factory. The pine nuts in this bar are from the Puchero neighboring Piñonsol cooperative from Pedrajas de San Esteban.
