Turron de Dona Pepa Peruvian Turron de Doņa Pepa, a sweet, anise-flavored treat. A traditional Peruvian dessert typically eaten in the month of October but delicious any time of year.

The month of October is better known as El Mes Morado in Peru. Translated, El Mes Morado means, the Purple Month, in honor of “El Seņor de los Milagros” ( “the Lord of Miracles” which is the Peruvian image of Jesus Christ). Why the Purple Month? Purple is the color of the Nazerenas nuns in Lima, Peru. During October, a series of religious processions are held in the city of Lima. Men and women walk the city streets clothed in purple dress. In fact, the color purple is prominently displayed throughout the city; purple clothing, purple banners, purple flowers, and of course, Turron de Doņa Pepa.

Doņa PepaThe reason this Peruvian dessert is so closely tied to El Mes Morado is because of a miracle. Stories vary, but all agree that Josefa Marmanillo, nicknamed “Doņa Pepa”, was a paralyzed slave from Caņete, Peru who was cured after a pilgrimage to Lima to worship the Lord of Miracles. After being healed of her paralysis, she created the Turron de Dona Pepa in appreciation and offered it to all worshippers of the Lord of Miracles. The miracle dates back over 500 years and continues to be celebrated every October by Peruvians all around the world.

"Turron de Doņa Pepa is Peru. Thank you for bringing the flavors of Peru to the USA."
