Mole Mole Mole

Friends making mole!
This week our compañera Gabbie did a very interesting lab group where we made mole! For those of you who don’t know, Mole is a very yummy sauce that is made with many different ingredients.  The ingredients depend on the recipe but also the location because recipes and specialties can differ from state to state in México. However, the traditional Mole consists of chili peppers, lots of spices, and even chocolate. At the beginning of the group we talked about how Mole started, which is actually very interesting because it is a mix of a lot of different ingredients from all parts of the world such as spices from Asia, turkey (the traditional mole meat) from the Americas and of course chocolate which is native to many parts of the world but also to Mexico and Latin America. In a way, Mole is perfect for Mexico because just like Mexico, Mole is a combination of contributions from people all over the world. After learning about the history of Mole, everyone got to help out making it and then of course, after everything was done, we had a delicious lunch. Yum!
