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.

Pre Ground corn seeds into my flour mill.  As you can see, the corn won’t flow and bridges as it enters the grinding.  So, i had to stay by to keep it poked down.  This was a long and slow process.
