Mandan Bride Corn Cornbread
Saturday was pickup day for Pioneer Valley's grain CSA . I am really impressed with the variety and quality of the grains and beans we got. I'll do a more extensive post on what we got later, but here's the first cooking effort. I used the same recipe from my blue corn cornbread entry , using Red Llamas Wheat and Mandan Bride Corn.
The Bride Corn kernels were so big that my mill had a hard time 'grabbing' them and pulling them into the stone. I ended up having to mill it twice -- the first time with the outer wheel very loose to get a coarse, rough grind, and then a second pass at a finer setting. It was a pain in the butt, but it worked.
The flavor of the final product was superb, I paired the bread with a berebere-rubbed pot roast with yams and carrots.
