Chicha Morada // Purple Corn Juice

Chicha Morada seems like the perfect autumn beverage. The spices are warming, the tart fruits make you pucker and overall it leaves you wanting more. This is truly one of my favorite drinks to prepare and enjoy!

Chicha Morada // Purple Corn Juice


3-4 purple corn cobs
1 quince, peeled & cut in 16 pieces
Rind and core of half a golden pineapple
2 cinnamon stick
6 cloves
4 liters of water
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice


    1. Combine purple corn cobs, quince, pineapple, cinnamon stick, cloves and water in a large pot. Bring to a boil.
    2. Turn down heat and simmer until the color darkens and the mixture begins to reduce in volume, about 45 minutes.
    3. Cool and strain completely. Stir in sugar until dissolved.
    4. Cool completely. Add lime juice.
    5. Chill and serve.

Yield: 10 cups
