Mount Mazama Lentil Chili – Large

$ 6.95

Product Description

Packed full of garlic, onion and chili powder the Mount Mazama Lentil Chili tastes great on potatoes. Unlike bean chilis that can sometimes be too watered down this soup is thick and creamy just like we think a chili should be. We like to throw a bunch a bakers in the oven then put a couple packages on the stove and invite the whole family over. It’s a great meal and like pizza tastes even better the next day.

Tidbits of History
Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens and the Columbia River Basalts are all obvious reminders of the Pacific Northwest’s turbulent history. Some of the region’s lesser known volcanoes, such as Mount Mazama, are just as breathtaking and even more awe inspiring.

Mount Mazama was birthed four hundred thousand years ago during the Pleistocene by fire and lava. At its tallest point Mazama towered 12,000 feet over the Southern Oregon countryside, the same height as Mt. Adams today. In 5677 BC a huge explosion changed the face of Mount Mazama forever. The Cascades had not seen an eruption to this scale for over 1 million years and the world hasn’t seen anything that can compare since.

Mazama began its form altering eruption by sending a plume of ash and pyroclastic material 30 miles into the atmosphere. After Mazama released all of its ash, cracks formed along the outside of the volcano and lava flowed out freely. After the material below the volcano was ejected a large hollow spot formed and the volcano collapsed into itself forming a caldera. The caldera that formed filled up with water from thousands of years of snow and rain.

Mount Mazama still stands over Southern Oregon but is now known as Crater Lake National Park. At 1,943 feet deep Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and the ninth deepest lake in the world. The National Park service fondly speaks of Crater Lake as having no comparison in all the world. “No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost 2,000 feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty.”

Some of the earliest archeological dating goes back 13,000 years to caves discovered in Greece. They have been an important staple over the centuries and were mentioned in the bible in Genesis 25:30-34. In this story Esau gave up his birth right for a bowl of lentils.
