What is stone-ground cornmeal? It is simply cornmeal that is ground on a stone-burr mill. Stone-burr mills provide a superior milled product compared to conventional high speed mills. The dense mass of the Balfour granite grinding stones keeps the temperature of the grist low. Since oxidation is the first enemy of freshness with stone ground grains, low milling temperatures provide a superior product.
The second enemy of freshness is time. That is why we grind to order. Who knows how long your average bag of cornmeal has been sitting on the grocery store shelf, regardless of how it was milled?
Cornmeal is the unsung hero of American cuisine. It is a versatile ingredient that can be used to make a variety of delicious and nutritious dishes. It is a good source of carbohydrates, fiber, and protein, as well as vitamins and minerals.
Cornmeal can serve many purposes. Fine cornmeal makes a great and simple pancake, otherwise known as a hoecake, although fine cornmeal makes great cornbread as well.
Blended with a little wheat flour (or substitute), the potential expands. Cookies (or pizzelle) are delicious and well within the skill difficulty of the average home chef.
Use as a base for hushpuppies, as a dredge for chops, fish, fried green tomatoes, chicken, as a peel for loaves and pizza, spoonbread, cornmeal dumplings, or a sundry list of things. Our cornmeal is the stuff you need for that.
