Hominy Candy Demo_facebook event

Join us to learn how to cook traditional hominy corn!

Elena Terry will demonstrate how to cook hominy corn using the "nixtamalization" process to remove the hull and release more nutrients for the body to absorb. This process is necessary to prepare hominy for use in Indigenous foods from many tribes including Pasdayapi (a Dakota soup).
Next, Elena will share a fun recipe: hominy maple candy!
