Amaranth: Another Ancient Wonder Food, But Who Will Eat It?

Amaranth is harvested.

National Geographic's Brian Howard has written an interesting article on the "ancient, nutritious crop" which "might make a comeback in Oaxaca."

"Grown by the Aztecs and then all but eliminated in the Spanish conquest, the ancient crop amaranth may become the next quinoa. Advocates hope amaranth can help Mexicans eat healthier, better connect to their roots, and lessen their impact on the environment. But will people eat it?"
