mesquite

  • Mesquite is a generic name for a number of small shrubby trees that are found wild in southwest United States and Mexico.
  • They have also been introduced to other parts of the world, parts of Africa, where they have become an invasive species.
  • The mesquite trees produce a edible bean like pod, and this was once a native food source.
  • Mesquite meal or flour is made by finely milling the seeds and pods of the Mesquite Tree.
  • Mesquite meal is used in raw food recipes to create a malty taste.
  • It is definitely not something you would use as a sweetner, as one reviewer tried to do!
