Mesquite was a staple in Native American diets for generations. Many arcosanti residents have joined forces with Colleen Reckow and the Slow Food Prescott this summer to harvest mesquite all over site.This mesquite will be turned into enough flour for the annual Mesquite Pancake Breakfast, an event that can feed as many as 200 people!
Mesquite is a superfood, high in protein, lysine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and dietary fiber. It is also naturally gluten free. More to come and please join us for the pancake breakfast this November.
