Dried Red Corn
Choose 10 or 60 lbs.
Dried red corn kernels are white on the inside with pinkish, clay-red colored skins. They have a toasty earthy, sweet flavor & average about ¼” by ¼” in width & length.
In addition to being soaked, then simmered for use as a vegetable in soups or creamed corn, dried red corn can also be ground into red corn meal or red polenta (which will actually be mostly white).
Stored dried red corn kernels in an air tight container in a cool, dry, dark place.
