  1. pearl hominy

    Pearl hominy is a type of dried corn that has been soaked in an alkali solution to remove the hull and germ, resulting in large, white kernels. This process, known as nixtamalization, gives the hominy a distinct flavor and texture. Pearl hominy can be ground into grits, used in soups or stews, or cooked and served as a side dish. It is particularly popular in Southern and Mexican cuisine.
