Equipping The Modern Kitchen In The Arizona Desert (Circa 1750)

 ~ Every Indian Kitchen Needed One ~

This valley was a food source for ancient Amerindians: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderThe kitchen is the first room I want to see in a new home.  Ease of food preparation has a lot to do with the home's value.  I've toured beautiful homes and been captured by the modern conveniences that have been installed in the kitchen.  Maybe the subject resonates more with me because I dearly love to cook.

It's been the same throughout history. Cooks everywhere want conveniences.

I took these photos southwest of Tucson, in the Sierrita mountains.  I was bushwhacking (exploring where no trails exist) in the valley at the base of a granite upthrust, when I came across this communal "kitchen." 

Who can identify the food source and the method of preparation?  (Incidentally, this same food source and method of preparation are practiced and enjoyed in Tucson's cuisine today.)

What's this?  Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lender
