Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is cornmeal made from?

    • Cornmeal is a type of flour that's ground from dried field corn. Field corn, which is harder and more mature than sweet corn varieties, is left to dry out naturally in the fields before it's harvested and ground. The process involves removing the corn's outer hull and germ, leaving behind the endosperm that is ground to create cornmeal. It's a versatile ingredient used in a multitude of baking recipes around the world.
  • Are there different types of cornmeal?

    • Absolutely, cornmeal comes in different types, mainly categorized by the coarseness of their grind. These include fine, medium, and coarse varieties. Each type brings a distinct texture to your dishes and can be used for specific recipes.
  • When should I use fine yellow cornmeal?

    • Fine yellow cornmeal is a good choice when you're baking or cooking something that requires a softer, smoother texture. Examples include cakes, muffins, and certain types of bread. Fine yellow cornmeal has a granulation that is small enough to blend well with other ingredients, ensuring a consistent texture in your final product.
  • What is coarse ground cornmeal typically used for?

    • Coarse ground cornmeal is most often used in recipes like polenta and cornbread. The larger, more robust granules of this cornmeal type impart a pronounced texture and slightly more intense corn flavor to these dishes. It can also be used for dusting baking surfaces to prevent dough from sticking.
  • Is there a difference in using fine versus coarse yellow cornmeal in my recipes?

    • Indeed, the choice of cornmeal can have a significant impact on your final product. Fine cornmeal results in a smoother, softer texture, ideal for delicate baked goods. On the other hand, coarse cornmeal leads to a more rustic, grainy texture, adding character to dishes like polenta and cornbread. So, it's important to choose the right type based on the texture you want in your dish.
