AMARANTH

Aztec information

This is not a God but a very edible starchy plant used in Holy Scoff.

The seeds were mixed with human blood and shaped it into dough figures which were worshipped in the month of Panquetzaliztli, whenever that is.

These Aztec gingerbread people are still available in Mexico, but nowadays they make it with honey instead of blood.
