We have grown our corn meal corn. Why is it red? It is call Bloody Butcher Cornmeal Corn. Used to make brown cornmeal, It will be Pinkish or Brownish in color once it is ground into Cornmeal. Just another way to keep us out of the grocery store, and use money somewhere else it could be more useful.  You grow it the same as you would sweet corn. Just leave it in the field a little bit longer so that it is completely mature. Make sure all your silks are brown before harvesting. Once you’ve harvested, shuck and remove all corn from the cob. (If you are composting your trash would be great for your compost pile.)

This is a mobile grinder.

We visited a little place in Jackson Co. known for grinding cornmeal. It was an awesome adventure! Little did we know that this place was so amazing. Hootin old town! We sat out to see if this place would lend us a hand in getting our corn ground into meal. and was amazed by what we pulled into. A little place in the country sat up as a late 1800’s town. With a regular meal (not the one shown) an old Motel, Jail, Saloon, and much more. Everyone needs to check this place out!

You put your corn in this tray, and the machine feeds it through and grinds it into meal.

Can’t wait to get ours done. I am excited! It just amazes me how much money is saved by growing a garden. People, you all really need to think about what it cost to live in today’s society. We all have to eat everyday. What you can save. How much healthier you would be. If you took a couple of hours a week, had your family time in a garden, instead of a restaurant, or movies. ect…

It is Quality Time with the people you love and is healthy for everyone!!!

Have a great and blessed day!
