This all Non-GMO, heritage cornmeal is naturally pink! Truly a unicorn. When Greg Johnsman of Marsh Hen Mill (formerly Geechie Boy Mill) found some pink kernels on an ear of his heritage Sea Island Blue Corn, he decided to save the seeds and see if he could make a little magic. Thus Unicorn corn was born. Greg and his amazing team grow this and all of their heirloom grains, peas and grains on their family owned farm on Edisto Island in South Carolina. Greg mills the corn in small batches on his antique milling equipment for the highest quality possible. Old mills work a little slower than modern equipment but that's just what Greg is looking for. He doesn't want the mill to heat up the grain and destroy the natural oils and flavors. Its why cornmeal from Marsh Hen Mill is so special. You might even call it magical!
To enhance the color, add a little lemon or lime to your cooking. We've found that the corn will toast to a brown when introduced to high heat, like in our waffle iron, but the inside will be a beautiful purple-pink. Also the more cornmeal in your recipe, the more vibrant the color will be. In our cornbread which is only half cornmeal, half flour the color is much less pronounced. Have fun experimenting with this delicious cornmeal in all of your cooking!
