ExcellentDec 05, 2012
By P. McWhorter
When they describe this as "Giant" they are not kidding. I did not know corn/hominy kernels could get this big. I was very pleased with the product, and the large size makes for an interesting posole. I was also pleased that the product came well sealed in a bag, and the kernels were very clean. I did not find any trash or foreign material in among the kernels.
Excellent product and well packaged. I will buy again.
This is slaked corn. Just soak in waterDec 18, 2013
Delicious corn slaked and dried- ready to soak and cook. Do not use powdered lime, this step is already done. I had no trouble with soaking this corn overnight and then blooming it in broth. It took about an hour simmer.

Definitely not true posole corn and not what I expected...Feb 17, 2011
By Mrs. McGyver
I ended up throwing it all way -- all 25 lbs of my order after I used a few pounds of it to make my grandmother's recipe for posole. It just wasn't TRUE posole. Although it resembled the creamy white kernels in appearance (except the kernels were a bit rounded and too fat at the germ), the taste was completely wrong. It wasn't terrible, it just wasn't posole and I couldn't eat it. I believe this corn is used for Ecuadorean food -- definitely not Mexican -- and certainly not posole. What a disappointment that this company (who does have lovely offerings on their web site) is passing this product off, perhaps unintentionally, as something it certainly isn't. Yeah, I should have tried to return it, but I was so disgusted. It took me a while to get my perspective back -- I mean, it was only corn... I'm better now... :]

I can't tell what exactly I haveSep 11, 2013
By David A. Drumheller
I'm used to buying hominy that needs to be soaked in lime and then rinsed. Also known as "slaked." I am aware that much hominy is sold that has already gone through this treatment and then dried. This is often referred to as "Prepared Pazole" or "slaked hominy," but it should be right on the label. I currently have two pounds soaking in a lime solution. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if I need to throw it out or if it is the raw untreated hominy that was meant to be soaked in a lime solution.
I wish I knew exactly what I had so that I could devise a strategy for cooking it.
