All right guys im going for the kill...
Im going to TRY to make hominy for the first time...my grandma and momma used to make it...does any one have a good suggestion on corn or a recipe..
Hickory King (8 row corn) was the traditional Appalachian do it all corn. It was used for roastin' ears, grit bread, cornmeal, cornmeal mush, grits, and livestock feed and fodder. But any dent corn will work.
This recipe is approximate.
1 gallon of shelled corn.
1 cup of hydrated lime.
Place corn in a stainless pot and cover with a few inches of water and add the lime. Bring it to a boil then and simmer for a few minutes. Turn off the heat and let the corn cool to touch in the pot. At this point the skins on the kernels should be an orange color and you should be able to remove them and the black tips from the kernels. If not, rinse the corn and repeat. Once you get the the kernels clean of the skins, just rinse them and cook them until they are tender.
There's a few videos on YouTube that will help. Some use lye, some use ashes. But all will work. Here's one using lye.
Im going to feed store tomorrow see what he got...thanks for video...
It's amazing how dry the scraps are. Reminds me of the old wringer washers.
Got corn and lime today i will post pics tomorrow ...thanks Barney.
You're welcome, sir! The dryer the corn the longer it will take. Be prepared and patient.
When I worked in the vegetable cannery, right at the end, we started making hominy. I don't remember much about the process, but I remember that it was easy to screw up.
Be sure to watch at 8:20, for another kind of watermelon.
And I thought Barney was the Watermelon King....
Barney, this one came up from a seed i spit out a couple months ago. I don't think he is going to make it before frost.
I assumed this was Barney's place
That’s some serious equipment
That little feller probably won't be delicious with the days getting shorter, but I would bet it will get ripe and mature the seeds inside.
Years ago, my uncle planted seeds on the 4th of July. The melons started getting ripe in mid September, and were a nice treat until we got a freeze in October.
I got a new phone and need to download a photo resizer app for this website. My last charge of summer crops I planted in June/July are fizzing out. I’m really winding down on summer stuff and transitioning to fall/winter. Also very burnt out on picking and have a much needed vacation this week. I have 60 crimson sweet melons loaded up to sell tomorrow and they may be the sweetest of the season. I’ll try to get some pics uploaded in the next couple days.
I always enjoyed the rest and unwinding I got this time of year when the garden was coming to an end, and I always looked forward it. I also always enjoyed my shoebox stacked neatly full of Franklin's and Grant's.
I didn't have very much investment in what I grew this year. I used mostly leftover, and saved seeds for everything. I even had some leftover seed starting mix from a few years back. My biggest expense this year was fertilizer and a little fuel for the tiller and water pump. So I didn't plan on selling anything I produced to recover expenses. I figured we would use what we could, and the rest would go to family and friends. That plan didn't work out very well. People can just use so many maters, and after a few watermelons they get old too.
So after we canned all of the maters we wanted, and everyone was tired of melons, I asked one of my friends who sells produce if he could use any. He did, and he even picked it. He took 100 watermelons, and he picked the grafted maters twice one week during the peak of ripening. One day last week my friend stopped by and thanked me for helping him out. We talked awhile about gardening and other things, and just as he was leaving, he reached into his pocket and pulled out an envelope with my name on it. I opened it after he left and Inside was 10 $100 bills!
Being generous came back to you, nothing wrong with that
