mzn asks if Pinewoods Community Farming makes grits as well. I’d say the short answer is yes. They make two medium grind flours, one from hominy and one from roasted maize, and their mill is not adjustable (I asked). They found out the mill was not adjustable, I am told, one time when they, uh, tried to adjust it. But the flour is really coarse enough to make a very lovely cereal, as I found when I got up just now craving a midnight snack.

Hominy Grits

Bring three cups of water to the boil. Add ¾ teaspoon salt and 1 cup Iroquois tamal flour, stirring rapidly. Continue to cook and stir twenty minutes. Serve in bowls with a slivers of butter and milk. Go back to sleep.
