I grow oneh.o, ( Seneca white corn ). Some of which is ground into meal for use in a special non yeast bread recipe ( more on that later ) and the rest turned into hominy. I use the traditional method of boiling the dried kernels in hardwood ashes to remove the outer skin, then dry the resulting hominy on horizontal window screens in the sun. The dried hominy lasts pretty much indefinitely and can is added to bean and soup dishes, ground to make grits or masa harina for tortillas. The process of boiling in ashes is called nixtamalization and has many benefits for the processing of corn. Hard to imagine how this was discovered in ancient times.
