MAÍZ🌽 DE NUESTRA TIERRA.
@Regran_ed from @jalezone - Maíz waxy o ceroso de color blanco.
El ceroso es un maíz con una harina especial causado por un gen que afecta la composición de su almidón.
Se llama ceroso porque al cortarlo se asemeja a la cera lo que le da ese aspecto opaco como de mármol.
Es muy usado a nivel industrial para generar almidones modificados muy usados en la industria de alimentos, adhesivos, corrugados y papel, entre otras; esto por sus propiedades de aglomeración, formación de películas, estabilizante y espesante.
No lo vas a ver en el anaquel, es exclusivamente industrial, aunque hay mercados en Asia que tienen preferencia por su mazorca tierna (jojoto, elote)

Small and marginal #farmers get “Highest Price Guarantees” for their produce....farmer #sales their #maize at Ergos #platform at ₹1750-1760/quintal where as #MSP is only ₹1700/quintal...छोटे एवं मझौले किसानो को मिलता है उनके अनाज का सर्वाधिक दाम की गारंटी... मक्का अपने ऐतिहासिक स्तर को छूते हुए किसानो ने ₹१७५०-₹१७६०/ क्विंटल तक बेचा, जबकि सरकारी समर्थन मूल्य तो सिर्फ़ ₹१७००/ क्विंटल ही है
#GoodFind at @smsupermarket. Two kilograms of #quinoa for P600. Normally you would find a 500g for P300. This is a healthier alternative if you’re trying to lose weight but love to eat #rice . Though it doesn’t have the same bite as our staple grain but it does give me the “psychological satisfaction” I need especially when eating it with “rice-friendly” viands😜. It is #expensive but I don’t use it a lot. I sporadically alternate it with our very own #camote or #maize . Losing weight depends on what you put in your body as well as how you exercise.
It’s easy to prepare just like cooking rice. But I toast the seeds (yes it’s seeds not grains) until fragrant and add water twice it’s volume and hit “cook” in the rice cooker. A half cup of uncooked quinoa is good enough for me for a single meal. #fabfind#fabfinds#geekymomm#thegeekymomm#geekymommtips
Got myself this amazing art of Tlaloc by @urbanaztec for my birthday. If ever there was a legitimate artist that made the mythology of my predecessors and ancestors into a beautiful, collectable art form, it's this guy.
Put down the consumer art and find something that resonates on a deeper level.
He currently has a few pieces up at kidrobot.com and I'd highly recommend grabbing one of these new pieces.
Kenya, officially known as the Republic of Kenya, is an East African nation that gained its independence from the British rule on 12 December 1963. The day, December 12, marks a double occasion – as on this day Kenya gained #freedom from the #British#colonial era in the year 1963 as well as the day when it became a #republic in 1964.
According to The #NewYork Times, it was the day when “Britain’s 'UnionJack replaced by the black, red and green flag of the new states, political power in Britain’s last #EastAfrican colonial holding slipped from the grasp of its 55,759 whites and was taken up by its 8,365,942 Africans.” Independence Day Celebration
The Independence Day, also known as #Jamhuri Day (“Jamhuri” – a Swahili word – which means “Republic”) is one of the most significant national holidays observed in Kenya. Moreover, this is the most widely celebrated festival of Kenyans.
Traditionally, the president accompanied by defense forces and government dignitaries gives a speech at #Nyayo Stadium of #Nairobi . The colorful flag of Kenya can be seen waving in private dwellings, buildings, and everywhere in the capital city of #Nairobi .
The day is also celebrated by various cultural festivals that reflect Kenya’s distinct cultural identity. Colorful and traditional outfits – #Kitenges and #Kikoys – are worn by the Kenyans to celebrate this momentous day. Typical Kenyan delicacies – porridge made of #maize , #Ugali , and mashed vegetables made into balls and soaked into meat stews – are relished. On this day, Kenyan communities usually come together from all over the world and commemorate their #heritage of Africa.
Independence Day celebrations, therefore, include, #political speeches, #dancing , #feasts , and parades.
National Flag of Kenya
The national flag of Kenya, combined with #historical events that gave a new shape to the country, truly symbolizes the ambitions and aspirations of the country. 12 December 1963 was the day when the #Kenyan government officially adopted the national flag.
