Semilla de Morro

Semilla de Morro
I had never heard of the morro seed, until I asked my mother-in-law how to make horchata, a milky-looking drink that my husband is quite fond of.  My suegra sweetly replied that I would simply need to find myself some, "semilla de morro".  

The morro seed comes from a large, coconut sized, lime-colored fruit that grows on the morro tree.  The seeds are dried and crushed up into a very fine powder so that they can be used to make horchata salvadorena.  To make horchata salvadorena, the morro seed powder is combined with a mixture of ground up rice and milk, nuts, and an array of spices such as cinnamon, cocoa, nutmeg, and vanilla. 

To view a picture of the morro tree and read more about the fruit, please see this post:

This seed is new to me! I've heard of horchata, but never made it or had it myself. Might have to experiment soon =)

Hey Cipota if you ever come to NY you have to visit El Morro Restaurant & Bar they make the best Horchata and Pupusas north of the border. They have like 15 different Pupusas!!! They are located on 3712 13th. Ave. in Brooklyn. You have to try their empanadas...

Is there anywhere in the US to buy morro seeds?

Anything associated with Amor, morro is somehow connected with the history of the Moors. Moorish history is one of the greatest secrets of the entire world!
