It is corn that has undergone the nixtamal process and had the skins removed then dried. It can be found in Mexican markets. To use it soak overnight, then simmer is water until soft (about 2 hours).
Thanks for these tips from both of you as I've never been really happy with the texture of canned hominy although I've liked it enough to use it. The texture of the hominy served to me by Mexican friends is much better and I bet they've used these "no can" options. Duhh...why didn't I think of that. On my way to our little Mexican market.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
