Has anyone used this mill to grind nixtamalized corn (hominy)? How well does it work?
I don't even know what that is! :) I have used mine to mill both field corn and popcorn and it works great for that. I've also done dry beans and it makes a great bean flour.
If the hominy is still wet I don't think it will grind well. Dry it well and it'll mill like regular corn more or less.
Symple -- Nixtamal (aka hominy or posole) is whole corn steeped in lime or some other alkaline solution. It can be used whole in pozole (soup) or ground into masa.
Alan -- I should have specified wet, fresh, or moderately dried hominy. Thanks for your input. I’m wondering if it takes a large throat, a certain auger, or something else to mill wet hominy.
I'm assuming you want to grind your nixtamal to make fresh masa? It occurred to me last night that a food processor would be the way to go with high moisture hulled corn. You could probably get a fairly decent dough in a minute or two if the corn hasn't dried much yet.
