Ahh-HO! The corn has colored up nicely! In this years corn patch we decided to grow the heirloom Italian dent corn called Floriani Red Flint Corn. This can be ground into cornmeal and used for polenta or any other application cornmeal might be typically used.
One nice aspect of the corn is that it is gluten free so I’ll be attempting to find other ways of using it besides polenta, which, I happen to love. Stay tuned.
On Friday the weather prophets were predicting a hale and hearty blow through our neck of the woods, so we decided to pull the corn off the stalks. After last years popcorn crop was laid low by Hurricane Irene, we weren’t taking chances.
Alrighty then, it appears more pictures of the full harvest will have to wait. WordPress has been very squirrelly lately and with some frequency I cannot upload pictures. Ugh, tech issues… At least one pic came out.
Have a great day everyone!
