Instrucciones para disfrutar su Pan de Muerto

Congelamos el pan de muerto recien horneado y nosotros se lo mandamos asi para que se descongele en el camino y le llegue a su mesa fresco y listo para comerse. Para saborearlo mejor y si asi lo desea lo puede pre-calentar, favor de remover el papel Celofan y meter al horno por unos minutos a 300F (175C), una vez sacado del horno espolvorearlo con azucar y disfretelo.!!

El Pan de Muerto se hace de la manera tradicional a base de huevo con mantequilla y espolvoreado de azucar, ligeramente aromatizado.

El pan de muertos es una deliciosa tradicion muy Mexicana. Su origen tiene raices desde la epoca prehispanica, ya que le daban mucha atencion a la muerte, pero al llegar los espanoles a Mexico, esta tradicion se fusiono con el catolicismo al conmemorar a los familiares difuntos, principalmente los dias 1 y 2 de Noviembre.

Comer pan de muerto con chocolate caliente o atole, es una tradicion Mexicana. En muchos hogares se hacen altares a los muertos con su fotografia. En los altares se colocan ofrendas de frutas, flores, dulces, panes, calaveritas de azucar y bebidas que agradaran al difunto. Todo ello con el fin de ayudar al difunto en su transito a la otra vida. Es decir lo ayudaban con comida. Entre los aztecas existia ya una tradicion de colocar sobre sus tumbas ofrendas de monos hechos con semillas de amaranto.

El pan de muertos esta elaborado con mantequilla y una sutil esencia de azahar en conmemoracion de las flores que se presentan a los muertos. Sobre el pan se simulan los huesos del esqueleto.

El Dia de Muertos y la tradicion del Pan de Muerto

El Dia de Muertos se celebra en Mexico el 2 de Noviembre, inicialmente debido una tradicion cultural prehispanica, ya que se acostumbraba enterrar a los muertos haciendoles un velorio que duraba 3 dias y se les colocaba una ofrenda en sus tumbas con comida. A los altares o decoraciones que se hacian, se les ponian adornos de flores amarillas (cempasuchil) y se les agregaban objetos personales que supuestamente los ayudarian a continuar su camino al mas alla. Entre la comida que se les colocaba en la tumba o en los altares de las casas al recordarlos estaban los tamales de chile rojo.

Esta tradicion se fue complementando con la llegada de los espanoles en la epoca de la conquista quienes cambiaron la fecha de celebracion al dia de difuntos del calendario catolico, el 2 de Noviembre, un dia despues del dia de Todos los Santos. Los espanoles iniciaron el uso de la harina de trigo para estas ocasiones y empezaron a preparar los panes de donde nacio la tradicion del pan de dulce denominado Pan de Muerto.

La forma del pan de muertos tiene varias interpretaciones, hay quienes piensan que es como una flor con sus petalos y pistilos, pero la gran mayoria consideran que la bola del centro es la forma del craneo rodeada con huesos de las extremidades (canillas) que apuntan a esa bola central. El sabor a azahar o flor del naranjo se utiliza en recuerdo de los difuntos y para tener un aroma agradable. La forma redonda del pan de muerto simboliza una tumba.

Video Altar de Muertos en Las Manos del Artesano Gallery en La Jolla - Tradicion narrada por Juan Carlos Brito

Los altares del Dia de Muertos, se decoran con un gran numero de adornos, utilizando flores, velas, calaveras de dulce, veladoras, fotografias, papel crepe, vasijas, varios panes de muerto y platones con platillos mexicanos como: tamales, mole, nopalitos, pozole, atole, chocolate y otros dulces mexicanos y postres como el arroz de leche y la calabaza en tacha. El petate que se usa en la decoracion de los altares y donde se coloca la ofrenda simboliza el lugar donde el difunto llega a descansar para disfrutar de su banquete.

Interesante la cercania que tiene la celebracion del Dia de Muertos con el dia de Halloween y por tanto a veces se confunden. En Estados Unidos se celebra el 31 de Octubre el dia de Halloween o Noche de Brujas, que viene de la cultura Inglesa, donde los ninos se disfrazan y pasean por las calles pidiendo dulces de puerta en puerta. La tradicion hace que los ninos pidan dulce o hacen una travesura. Dulce o Treta (Trick or Treat). La palabra Halloween viene de la expresion Inglesa de All Hallows Eve o la vispera del dia de Todos los Santos. En Mexico tambien ya se acostumbra celebrar el dia de Halloween y hay quienes piden: Me da mi calavera o dame mi calaverita o queremos Halloween!

Las Ofrendas de un Altar de Muertos y su significado

La Flor de Cempasuchil significa la vida eterna de los difuntos junto a Dios.
Las Veladoras simbolizan el elemento Fuego y la luz que ilumina el camino de las animas.
El Agua significa la vida, el bautismo y sirve para calmar la sed del difunto.
El Copal o Incienso es el vehiculo que une el cielo con la tierra, igual que las oraciones.

Las Calaveras de Azucar significan una alusion a la muerte y simbolizan el elemento tierra.
El Papel Picado significa el elemento viento.

Re: recipe
It is difficult to determine how all 11 cups of flour are used, since the recipe only refers to 5, plus additional. I would change my comments here once I buy and taste the product, but I am only referring to the recipe now.
Merchant Response:Sorry for the typo, it should be 5 cups of flour in the ingredients list. The recipe is from Chef Jesse Tiscareno, not from MexGrocer.com Our bread comes from EL MOLINO Bakery in Mexico, please review our bread.

Delicioso!
I can't even begin to express how happy I was when I found out you guys carry this pan de muerto from El Molino. I am from Mexico CIty, & one of the things I miss most from Mexican food is the pan de muerto which I have tasted here & is just not the same. When my order arrived I was so pleased with the quality. It was so fresh & tasty that I immediately ordered some more for my brother & sister who live in Texas. I would recommend it to anyone, or maybe not 'cause I don't want you guys to run out :)
