This type of horchata is a great example of blending Spanish and Latin American traditions. In Spain, horchata is made with the chufa nut, a vitamin rich tuber that lends a creamy, sweet flavor to the drink. In El Salvador they use native seeds and nuts instead, including peanuts and morro seeds, as well as rice powder.
Morro seeds are from a native tree, and come in a shell that is very hard to crack. Inside the shell are nutritious seeds that are ground into a powder. This food was known even in Mayan times, and was a part of their creation story.
