                                                     Escuela de Cacao
                                                     'Whole bean' Choclate Bar School

Learn how to make cacao honey bars which we invented ourselves in 2005 to make amazing natural chocolate bars without need to use imported or processed cocoa powder or butter  and guaranteeing that you are using real cocoa butter because it wasn't bought as a white block of possibly hydrogenated vegetable oil but is instead only the real natural cocoa butter found in the native Guatemala cacao beans you roast and grind yourself ! Honey partly mimics texture of cocoa butter which means you don't need to add 10% more butter fat than is naturally in  the bean to make  bars which is the case for conventional bars from Hershey's to the 'best Belgian' chocolate etc.
Classes are Q 150 per person but you get a whole pound of cacao honey we normally sell for Q100 per pound for free,so your class is really only Q 50.You can also make additional pounds of cacao
honey for yourself or to give to friends and family as gifts,etc, for only Q100 PER POUND AND TELL THEM YOU MADE IT YOURSELF.This is NOT a 'ChooCircus',this is real cacao from the
Mayan-Olmec  region where cacao was first domesticated and where the Maya even wrote its name  in stone.

                                                         roasting classes.

Learn to roast coffee.Buy six pounds or more of green coffee beans(Q 45 lb.per pound)and roast it
yourself,(an approximate 2 hour low temperature slow roast process).
Or buy and roast six pounds or more of chocolate beans or cacao beans for Q 50 per pound and roast
them here yourself.
Better yet, learn to make cacao honey bars which we invented ourselves in 2005 to make amazing natural chocolate bars without need to use imported or processed cocoa powder and guaranteeing  that you are using real cocoa butter because it wasn't bought as a white block of possibly hydrogenated vegetable oil but is instead only the real natural cocoa butter found in the native Guatemala cacao beans you roast and grind yourself !

Aprenda a tostar el café. Compre seis libras o más de granos de café verdes (Q 45 lb.per libra) y tápelo
usted mismo, (un proceso aproximado de asado lento a baja temperatura de 2 horas).
O compre y tueste seis libras o más de granos de chocolate o de cacao por Q 50 por libra y tueste
ellos aquí tú mismo.
Mejor aún, aprenda a hacer barras de miel de cacao que nos inventamos en 2005 para hacer increíbles barras de chocolate naturales sin necesidad de usar cacao en polvo importado o procesado y garantizar que está usando manteca de cacao real porque no se compró como un bloque blanco de ¡posiblemente aceite vegetal hidrogenado, pero en su lugar solo es la verdadera manteca de cacao natural que se encuentra en los granos de cacao nativo de Guatemala que usted asa y moltura!

How do I know how much dried beans to use in place of canned beans?

If your recipe calls for canned beans and you want to use dried beans instead, have no fear!  Below I have created a conversion chart to help you make the switch!  Cans of beans are usually 15-ounce cans, while most small bags of dried beans are about 1 pound.  All numbers are approximate, of course, but seem to work well.
Dried to Canned Beans Conversion. How to Cook with Dried Beans - By Dietitian Brittany

*Bonus Recipe*

Have I convinced you to cook with dried beans yet?  Take a look at this bonus recipe! 
I wouldn’t leave you hanging with all this newfound knowledge on how to cook with dried beans and not provide you with anything to use them in!  As promised, below is a great recipe using dried beans.  I first made this recipe back in my dietetic student days at USU for a health fair.  I cooked it up with a few of my dietitian-to-be classmates and served it to our fellow Aggies.  I don’t want to brag or anything, but it was kind of DELICIOUS!  It is so simple yet results in a great flavor.  Go ahead and give it a try!

  •  
  • Total Time: 14 hours
  • Yield: 12 / 6 oz. portions
  •  
  • Category: Soups/Stews


Description

Prep may take a while, but it is easy because you are soaking the beans overnight (all the work is done while you are sleeping). The cooking is done in a slow cooker, so you don’t have to do much work for that either! Just plan ahead for the soaking and the time it takes to cook, then throw it all together and go about your daily business while it cooks to perfection!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dry black beans, soaked overnight
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 teaspoons diced Guajillo Chile pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced

  • Instructions

    1. Once the beans have soaked overnight, place in crock-pot and add remaining ingredients (adjust the seasonings and/or spices to desired spiciness).
    2. Cook on high for 4 hours, reduce heat and continue to cook for 2 hours or until beans are soft.
    3. Garnish with low fat sour cream and cilantro.

Oct 10, 2017 - New research shows how, with the addition of a bacterial gene, corn's nutritional value can be efficiently enhanced. The gene enables corn, the largest commodity crop in the world, to produce methionine, a key amino acid essential for tissue repair and growth. By producing a staple crop that contains ..

The nine essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lycine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine

Corn does have all of the essential amino acids but is considered a "low-quality" protein or what used to be called an "incomplete" protein. Low-quality protein foods may be lacking or have very low quantities of the nine essential amino acids and, therefore, should be combined with other foods to provide adequate amounts of all essential amino acids. All protein is comprised of amino acids, and essential amino acids cannot be made by the body, meaning they must be provided through your diet. The nine essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lycine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.


Lentils are tiny nutritional powerhouses that offer a variety of health benefits. They are often star players in a balanced vegetarian diet. While lentils do contain all nine essential amino acids that are required by humans, they are low in the amino acid methionine, so you should not rely on them as your sole source of protein. When lentils are consumed along with other plant foods that are rich in methionine, you'll get the right amounts of all of the amino acids that your body needs.

ABSTRACT: :
The nutritional composition and protein efficiency ratio (PER) of raw corn meal and of tortillas prepared by extrusion and nixtamalization processes were determined. Rats were fed with diets containing unprocessed raw corn meal (RCM), tortillas prepared from extruded fresh masa without lime (ET), tortillas made from extruded fresh masa with 0.25% lime content (ETWL), and tortillas made with the traditional nixtamalization method (NT). The ETWL had higher protein (8.50%) and dietary fiber (14.52%) contents than did the NT (8.15% protein and 7.39% dietary fiber). The PER value of the ETWL diet was 14.65% higher (P ≤ 0.05) than that of the RCM diet and equivalent to that of the NT diet.
