Last year we grew a little bit of Bloody Butcher grain corn. Last weekend, we finally got a chance to grind the corn, using a friend’s grain grinder. Here are just a few photos.
First, a closeup of the corn.
Below is a look at the grain grinder. They come in all different models, but this is an old one, which is hooked up to a motor.
And here’s a closeup of the corn after grinding. This was after one time through the grinder, after this we did a second grind to make it finer.
In the end, we got a good sized bag of the cornmeal.
Now the cornmeal is in the freezer, and we’re planning what to do with it. Cornbread? Pancakes? Polenta? These are hard choices.
