    Looks great

    I bought 5 lbs of Bloody Butcher Red Corn Kernels to make homemade tortillas. The corn needs to go through the nixtamalization process of cooking in lime water (calcium hydroxide) before grinding the corn into masa. I have tried twice and for some reason this corn takes a lot longer to simmer than the 40 minutes called for in the recipes, and the results are not uniform. Some kernels are al dente and some are not. I will try again with a different recipe that calls for less boiling time and longer soaking time, but I have a feeling this corn may be stale. Hope not. I gave the product 3 stars for this reason. The customer service and quality of the order fulfillment (packaging, quick no-hassel delivery) is 5-star, so the average is 4!

    Good Stuff

    I used this to make my sourdough cornbread. I was hoping for a redder product, as the cornbread came out a dark maroon - I blame the sourdough. The flavor was excellent, though, and that's what counts.

    Delicious!

    Excellent quality. If you're looking for heirloom cornmeal, this is the place to order from. The value is incomparable.

    Made amazing carrot muffins

    It was a delight to use. Delicious.

    Whole Wheat Is Very Tasty

    I have not ordered whole wheat for any of the flours I have used in the past, but wanted to make a loaf of wheat bread. The Rouge de Bordeaux is perfect and very tasty. I used half whole wheat and half of Tam 000. The loaf came out perfect and the family loved it.

    Unique products

    The flour is incredible! The bread we’ve baked was delicious and testy!

    Excellent for sourdough!

    I’ve been using this for sourdough pizza crusts and they turn out awesome!
