Wheat pinole, also known among the Pima as Pilkan Haaki Chu’I or S-bahi chu’I (roasted flour) is a wholesome traditional snack food made from carefully parched Ramona Farms heirloom Pima Club Wheat Berries which are finely stone-ground. Mixed with water, milk or fruit juice, Pinole makes a delicious, satisfying and sustaining drink. Back in the days when most travel was on foot or horseback, Pinole was the preferred traveling food as it was easy to carry, needed no preparation and was satisfying and nutritious. This ‘fast food’ was preferred by Pima runners who carried the news from village to village.
