Last night I was digging up old pictures of the corn I’ve grown the past few years and thought it was really interesting and pretty. I only grow dent corn since that’s what we use for cornmeal and grits.
These are all pictures from the blog so you’ve seen them before but . . here they are again.
The red corn ends up making pinkish colored grits.
The blue corn makes a grayish colored grits.
This is the Glass Gem corn and it makes grits that are mostly white or white enough that you wouldn’t notice they weren’t storebought grits. Maybe if I used all kernels from the dark corn, it would be a different color but we remove all the dried kernels, vacuum seal them in bags, then use as needed so they all get mixed up together.
Once the kernels are popped off the cob, and all mixed up, they don’t look nearly as brightly colored as they do on the cob.
We like our grits coarsely ground. Those are ground from the Glass Gem corn. The bad news . . on our keto eating plan . . no grits!
