ORGANIC SPECIALTY CORN

Certified Organic Corn

whole grain, germ included, stone ground meal

(the whole kernel, germ included, are left in for better taste and nutrition,  though it does then need to be refrigerated (or frozen) if stored for an extened period of time)

As with wheat,  the starches in a corn kernel can also be either soft (white and powdery) or hard (colored and translucent)

this results in three general types of corn

*Flint:  made mostly of hard starch

*Dent:  made of both soft and hard starch (when the kernels soft starch matures/ dries out, it shrinks to for a characteristic dent on the kernels top)

*Flour:  made mostly of soft starch

BLUE HOPI

The Blue Hoppi corn listed here is an heirloom flour corn variety, NOT a dent or flint.  The starch is mostly all soft, and is especially sweet.  It makes a good, flavorful blue colored cornbread or grits.  Because of it's soft starch,  it's only offered as a medium grind, which works well for both grits and baking and in breads.

It's a 600 year old open pollinated variety that came from the Hopi Indians of the American southwest.

BLOODY BUTCHER

The Bloody Butcher corn listed here is an heirloom dent corn variety.  It's medium grind has pieces of hard starch that may take a considerable amount of cooking time to soften compared to other dent varieties.  I personally think the medium grind is too coarse when used in baked goods or cornbread, but great for grits (if you cook them long enough).  It's therefore also offered in a fine grind.

It's an heirloom open pollinated variety from the Appalachians.  Some "strains" of this variety have flecks of red on a white kernel that resemble blood on a butchers apron.  Our "strain" seems to have lost that characteristic and is mostly all dark blood red kernels with an occasional white one.
