Guatemalan Comfort Food: Camote, Chilacayote and Higos

Oh December, or the dry season for the matter, is full of Guatemalan comforting foods; mostly sweets like buñuelos, torrejas, mole, camote, chilacayote and higos. Perhaps, the fact that the dry season brings forth the low temperatures, around 6C/43F, courtesy of the cold winds blowing from the great white north (home to Manolo, the provocateur {his words}) that having something hot and sweet to warm up seems only logical.

Come back tomorrow for the recipe for making buñuelos at home, courtesy of long-time reader and friend Erin.
