(Submitted by Emilio Arteaga)
Cook Barley with pieces of pinaple, cinamon, and clavos de olor.Blend and sieve about 3/4th of the mixture. Recombine
Add rasberry extract, sugar and water.
Nicaraguan cheese is usually white and very salty. I haven't found
a cheese quite like it here.
Take ground up pinaapple cores, or ground
up corn cobs your choice ( grind to about the size of rock
salt or a little smaller). Soak a third of your mixture in in rasberry
extract and another third in vanilla extract (the real stuff, not immitation).
Mix it all together and serve with water and sugar.

in one end. Freeze. Dip in warm dipping chocolate, sometimes with chopped
peanuts. Refreeze, as soon as the chocolate is semi-hard.
Cosa de Orno
In Nicaragua you will commenly hear people with baskets over there head
shouting "va la cosa de orno". or "Here comes the oven thing". The
person could be refering to one of several things but probably is refering
to either 1. cornbread (made with corn not corn meal, extremely sweet) or 2.
hard baked cookies that are rich in baking powder and corn.
Gallo Pinto, every missionaries favorite
1. boiled pinto beans (the reddest you can find)
2. squash a few up
3. add to rice fried in oil
4. mix the two together and let them keep frying until everything is tender.
Serve with advacato slices, salty cheese, tejada frita, or nothing at all.
If you live down there you *will* learn to love this. (about 3 times a day,
every day. But made with all the love in the world, by the most awsome people
in the world.)

Every once in a while the supermarkets in the USA will carry a fruit called a tamarindo.
They look kind of like a huge string bean, but are brown on the outside and
orange on the inside. If you can find some you can make a juice by shelling
the tamarindas and squeezing the pulp into a pitcher. (Actually mooshing would
be a better verb.) Then you add suger and water to taste, Delicious.
