Healing spirits and tempting preserves



Grandma’s remedies and mom's recipes. Women in mountain villages are the keepers of the culinary knowledge passed down from mothers to daughters generation after generation. Fortunately, some of these women allow us to try their food. We gladly agreed to this pleasant task.

In the valleys, they grow hardy fruits. Apples, pears, figs, quinces, peaches and guavas make up the particular cornucopia of the region. The fruit is harvested and cooked to produce delicious fruit jellies and preserves with brown sugar. There are few pleasures that can compare with the sweet taste of candied fruit. In the Pueblo Mágico de Tlalpujahua, traditional cook Imelda Paredes runs Tres Generaciones, a traditional preserve shop in the village.

Man cannot live by candy alone, according to Vicenta Morales, the soul of Casa Morales, a leader in the production of herbal liqueurs and fruit preserves and jam. Doña Vicenta works with hundreds of herbs to produce exquisite liquors that also have healing properties for all kinds of ailments. When you go, don’t hesitate to ask about the properties of each concoction. We guarantee you won’t regret it!


We recommend

  • In addition to Tlalpujahua, you can find homemade preserves in Angangueo. When you arrive, ask for the nearest shop selling preserves.
