Their is a BIG taste difference in home ground cornmeal and that packaged and sold in the grocery store. Your generic cornmeal from the store will make cornbread that is barely edible at best.Keep in mind cornmeal is a fairly cheap thing to buy already ground for you and stores well when packaged properly.
That looks so good that I want you to invite me to dinner! That is beautiful. I have a cast iron skillet just like that but even though I seasoned it like it says, it sticks really really bad......can't fry eggs in it so I put it up. Any suggestions so I could make bread that looked like yours?This be a mill I bought offin ebay:
I dry LOTs of canned corn. I use this dried corn an run through the mill an make corn bread outa that.
Here be what it all looks like.
The finished cornbread.
I don't know. Seems like you may end up with a crusty white bread of some sort with corn. I'm picturing doughy fluffy as well.I wonder if you could make corn bread with can corn without drying it out?Just use less liquid in the recipe.
I think I'll try it and see.I know I'll have to put some leaven in it to make it rise so I'll put that in the flour.I never use flour in my corn bread but in this case I'd have to use dry ingrediant for it to rise.I also use eggs in mine.
Any other suggestions on this experiment?
