Cornmeal is the unsung hero of American cuisine.
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 Balfour granite of the grinding stones keeps the temperature of the grist low. Since oxidation is the first enemy of freshness, Low milling temperatures provide a superior product, since heat speeds up oxidation.
Additionally, we grind to order. The second enemy of freshness is time. Who knows how long your average bag of cornmeal has been sitting on the grocery store shelf, regardless of how it was milled?
