I've got about 5 lbs. of shucked blue maize (did I mention I kind of have a farm in Africa...). I'm thinking about blue corn tortillas and realize I need to cook it with an alkaline first, and found this helpful recipe:
http://www.gourmetsleuth... however, it seemed strange to me that it has you grind the corn wet? Anyone with any experience on this? I asked the Mexican moms at school, but they all sort of looked embarrassed and told me their mothers know how. Besides, with that much of it, I was thinking I'd like to save some for later...
I figure I might also make pozole too, so any recipe selections are welcome as well. And, finally, the kid is doing a unit on Native Americans at school and they're having a pow wow party. Any good thoughts for something to make with some of my blue corn for a bunch of second graders that would have Native American roots? corn cakes, I suppose...but wouldn't it be nice to do something a bit more exciting?
