Agave Road Trip

This is Adela del Carmen Cruz, age 20. She started making agave spirits when she was 11 years old, under the tutelage of her father, Hilario Perez Cruz. I’ve never met her, but she’s one of the [email protected] participating in the Agave Futures program I put together at sacred.mx to help bring some much-needed income to the tourist-starved communities of rural Mexico. Adela is part of a list of participants that was orchestrated by Randall Stockton of Mezcal Educational Excursions of Oaxaca so I’ll let him share a story about her:

“The first time we met her was only about a year and a half ago. I was a little skeptical because of her youth and her slight build -- she just didn't look nearly strong enough to do the hard work of making mezcal. She gave us a tour of her palenque and a thorough lesson of her entire process. In the midst of the lesson, I learned all kinds of new things about techniques I hadn't heard of before. (I won't explain further because they might be trade secrets.) I asked her how long she'd been making mezcal and she was nonchalant about it. ‘Oh, well, I started with my dad when I was about 11, so … eight years now. Besides my baby, mezcal is my life. Are you ready to drink?’

“We go over to a barrel full of tobalá that is easily twice her weight, if not more. Again, she's not a big, brawny person. I gear up to help her tip the barrel but she has me stand out of her way. She hip-checks the barrel and kicks a rock underneath the edge. Here's when we notice that there are rocks in various places all over the floor. She tilts the barrel back and forth on the rock until she kicks another rock under it and then tips the barrel to fill a pitcher full of mezcal. Turns out, she not only makes really great mezcal under her own label, La Palenquerita, but she also has an amazing knowledge of practical physics. And she's a tough negotiator: you will be buying her mezcal if you meet her. She's a total bad-ass and will soon be famous.”

Then, Carmen shares some pruning tips for cucumbers and tomatoes to make sure plants are staying manageable and disease-free.

Finally, we revisit the nasturtiums that Carmen planted in late spring, and see some of the vibrant green pesto that she makes using her cousin's Italian olive oil and the bounty of the garden.

I am so excited to find out about you!!!
A site posting 18th century Chinese recipes, translated from the Qing Dynasty cookbook/treatise on gastronomy, the Suiyuan Shidan (隨園食單). It’s amazing the variety of ingredients people cooked and ate back then. Nerdy but fun!

You sound like a good group. I saw you mentioned on Ancestry's FB page. You might want to make your identity/mission extra clear, as at first I thought it was probably a conservative political group. A sign of the times, I guess.
Thanks for the invite Heritage Radio Network ,I enjoyed listening to it.The different time and days are great.This gives listeners a broader - range of people's talking about ,What's going on.
