I made a mistake

I meant to order 25 lbs of whole grain corn from Great River Organic Mill. I accidentally ordered 50 lbs.

I've searched and searched. The only recipe I can find except for masa is Posole. Does anyone have any suggestions or do I just need to feed it to the squirrels?

Is it dried? If so ,freeze it if you have room. I freeze the stone ground grits I order, as well as flours I don't use often.

Yeah, I have a very small deep freeze. I use it mostly for freezing the fish food I buy in bulk. It'll fit. I may feed the squirrels some, too.

So, is it dried? Not sure what the "yeah" referred to.

If so, and you have an appliance that can grind it, you can make finely ground cornmeal for cornbread, muffins and hoe cakes, as well as coarse or medium grinds for grits and polenta.

Here's more information and some recipes: http://wholegrainscouncil.org/whole-...n-of-the-month

Yes, it's dried. I can grind it in the food processor. Will I have to nixalize it first for that? I'm not fond of grits and cornbread and muffins but if it's made from good quality feed corn I might change my mind about those things. Thanks for the ideas.

I'm not positive, but I don't think so.

I've found I like cornbread and muffins better when I add tasty ingredients like fresh corn, roasted red peppers, bacon, cheese and/or jalapeños. It's like pasta or beans to me - bland on its own, but toppings make all the difference.

25 pounds versus 50? Doesn't seem like a big difference to me. I understand if it was 59 pounds versus 5.. But what were you going to do with 25 pounds anyways?

Whatever it was, do it twice!

25 lbs was the least amount I could find. I was going to make tortillas and tamales and keep the rest in the freezer. I doubt that my freezer has room for 2 25 lb bags it might.

I looked up recipes for hominy and found a bunch of stuff, but being just one person, and only a once a day eater I still feel somewhat overwhelmed by 50 lbs of the stuff.
