Corn Meal Experiment

 

I purchased this open pollinated corn seed from Welter’s Seed with the intent of actually planting it and harvesting a large crop.  However, the reality is, i don’t have a corn planter and no one to plant a small plot, so now to find a use for these seeds.  I decided we needed to eat them.

It’s just ridiculous some of the things i try.  Here you can see i have to pregrind the corn because i only have a flour mill.  The corn seeds are  much too large to go through the mill.  So, into the Ninja Magic Bullet first, then to the grinder.  I set the mill on fine, so i’ve ended up with more like corn flour instead of corn meal.
