    High quality kernels with a satisfying nutty flavor. Do a hot soak before you cook.

    The green cornmeal is AMAZING!!

    I made cornbread as soon as I received my package and fell in love with the Oaxacan corn immediately. The color was amazing, and the flavor very full and very pleasing. I love it!

    Green Cornmill

    Love the green corn mill. Made cornbread with it. Some of the best cornbread I've ever had. Havent had time to fix the grits yet. Sure they will be just as delicious.

    Green corn + green chile = great posole

    I love posole, so I was curious to try a green chile pork version using Oaxacan green corn kernels. The kernels are smaller than the yellow hominy corn I have used before, but the flavor is bigger. With fresh roasted New Mexico green chile, the posole turned out great. A note about customer service: I ordered a bag of blue cornmeal and a bag of green corn kernels, but received both as cornmeal. When I let the folks at Barton Springs Mill know, they sent a bag of green corn kernels at no charge. Thanks!

    It was a pleasure dealing with this company as a retail consumer, I plan to use Barton Springs Mill as a commercial customer.

    Delicioso Polenta

    Blew my mind. Earthy, rich, almost nutty. Complex in-and-of-itself. Added a little butter, a little parm and romano. Paired with a red-wine rich, slow-cooked stracotta. But forget the rich beef. Everyone talked about the Oaxacan Green Corn Polenta.

    Great texture

    Great addition to Country Boule!

    Haven't taken the class yet. It's next month on Oct 23. Will be happy to fill out a survey then.

    Fantastic all purpose flour!

    I was a little concerned, since I normally buy standard organic baking flour from the grocery store, but this stuff is fantastic! I made the most wonderfully flaky biscuits and can't wait to get into more recipes.
