Horchata de Chufa is one of Spain's most loved drinks. It is a healthy beverage with a white milky appearance, very lightly seasoned with cinnamon and lemon.
La horchata de chufa is a Mediterranean product made of ground chufa nuts (actually the roots of the chufa plant) that are grown in the Valle de Nito in Spain.
Please do not confuse it with the Mexican beverage of the same name, which is rice based.
Egyptians used chufa nuts in ancient times, and some documents indicate that chufa was also consumed by people in Asia.
But, as with many other products, it was the Moors who first began cultivating chufa grass in Spain and originated the refreshing drink Horchata de Chufa from its tuberous roots.
It is a favorite chilled beverage in all of Spain, but particularly in Valencia, Murcia and Andalucía.
There is no refrigeration needed to store this horchata, so you can keep it on your pantry shelf. Serve very cold and then if there is any left, store the rest in the refrigerator.
