Puba Flour


OUR PEOPLE | PIAUÍ


Something very much appreciated by the inhabitants of the islands of the Delta do Parnaíba is “puba flour”.


Puba flour is produced, and crafted, during an event called ”farinhada”, a process that includes the whole family, and begins a year before with the planting of manioc.


At the right time, the men collect the manioc and the women rest. The manioc is peeled and placed in a tank of water where it is left to soak for 48 hours. Afterwards, still humid, it is ground, in an improvised homemade machine. With a press all the water is removed from the manioc mass, and next it is sifted and baked in a wood stove. This is the part that requires more strength because it is in the oven for about 2 hours without being mixed, so the younger men are chosen for this mission.


This whole process is showered with coffee, tapioca, baked fish, smiles and communion.
