Products in Hominy
Juanitas style of Hominy is the most popular style in Mexico. Hominy is made from the pre-Hispanic Aztec staple, corn. The corn is dried and then boiled and soaked in lime until it is moist and plump. The lime allows the corn to keep a firmer texture rather than turning mushy. It is then washed thoroughly to remove the hull and any trace of lime. The cleaned, boiled and washed corn is known as nixtamal, or Mexican-style hominy. Juanitas hominy is made from the finest corn available that is never bleached or prepared with lye.
