Like CSW, I'm not a big fan of canned hominy, but I don't go throwing it into the chicken feed, either.

Succotash is the best use I've found. Mix it with frozen or fresh corn and some baby lima beans. My mom always used to put some crumbled bacon in it as well.

If you have the time and inclination, it's worth making hominy from scratch. But be advised it's a lengthy process requiring special ingredients and not for the faint of heart.

Glad you brought this up. I had nearly forgotten this recipe I posted here four years ago. I must make it this week to go with some grilled rib eyes I have planned.
It's really good.

Something "different".....side dish

I love the blue hominy I get from Idaho and I love all kinds of legumes--but the canned hominy--the texture was down right gross. The girls liked it.

I didn't know you had chickens, Steve.

I don't... I just keep chicken feed around for myself.

This is where I get the blue hominy. I do soak it for 48 hours before using it.

The blue hominy is not really blue...more "black" than blue. I plant more purple potatoes than red or yellow. I like making potato salad using purple, red, and yellow potatoes around the 4th of July. But then, purple is my favorite color, so purple veggies always get real estate in my veggie garden.

Both blue & purple spuds and blue hominy attract me due to both their color, and added nutritional value. The blue potatoes are as full of antioxidents as are spinach, kale, and brussel sprouts.

Ahhhh, but those things are the right color. I'll get my antioxidants from spinach and kale, never the evil brussel sprouts.
