I've been thinking about getting me a little grain grinder of some sort and try my luck at making my own cornmeal. Just wondering if it would taste better. That might be determined by what kind of corn you grind I suppose. Field corn or hickory? Or both? Maybe grow and grind some hominy corn if I can figure out how it was momma use to dehull that stuff and cook it on the wood stove. On those cold winter days she would cook a big pot of hominy grits all day on the hot stove and that would be our supper. But she use to buy hers already fixed. All she had to do is cook it. I don't think I have seen it in the grocers in the last 20 years or so. I see the little boxes of instant grits or the little packages of grits that come in 1 pound clear plastic sacks. But this stuff that mom would get was coarse ground and came in a burlap like sack in 5 or 10 pound quantity. Anybody still see this stuff anywhere?
