Our field corn is finally ready to harvest. We initially grew it to feed chickens that we were going to get but I guess you could say that we “chickened out”. Maybe next year we’ll get some.
Anyways we have all this corn and have been wanting to make homemade cornbread with it and so we did today. We found this grinder at the flea market last year.
First we removed the corn from the cob, then ran it through the grinder 3 times. With each pass you get a finer texture.

Mix all ingredients. Bake in 8×8 cake pan at 325 until done, about 25 minutes.
