Additionally, Plaza Vea and Wong sell bottled Chicha de Jora for cooking.GreetingsEva
Chicha de Jora, not to be confounded with Chicha Morada, is an alcoholic beverage from the Andes region, which already was prepared and drunken by the Incas. Chicha is traditionally obtained by the fermentation of specific maize, the jora.
It's beer-like, has a pale yellowish color and a slightly sour taste.
Note: the word "chicha" is used in the Andes for almost any homemade fermented drink. While it's commonly associated with maize, other grains or fruits can be used.
