My grandmother used to make hominy from dried corn. I never saw her do it, but I've heard my mom talk about it and I've eaten some that she made. It was delicious. I have no idea how she prepared it, but it didn't have extra ingredients (I don't think).

Believe it or not, the old-timers used to use lye to make hominy. I think they soaked the corn kernels until they were swollen, but I don't remember exactly. I've eaten it made like that at my grandma's. I was either too young or too smart to question using lye to prepare food. You didn't question my grandma about the food that she put on the table. We just ate it. I liked it then, and I still like the canned stuff.

fried sans onions, covered and allowed to brown. Make SURE you cover the pan or this stuff pops like popcorn, hurts too.

Exactly what my mother always did. Loved it as a kid! Now I think I'd add some chopped onion and green pepper, maybe a touch of ground cumin.
