Your kernel-to-masa journey starts here. A rainbow of rich, nutty, fragrant varietals of heirloom corn grown by traditional farming communities across Mexico, from Tlaxacala to Oaxaca, Michoacán to Yucatán.
Olotillo is a workhorse that will produce a balanced masa, no matter the final application; it contains a light, floury starch for a pillowy table tortilla and a dense enough body for making perfect tostadas, totopos and recipe tortillas (i.e., tortillas meant for enchiladas, enfrijoladas, etc.) that don’t absorb excess oil when fried.
White Bolita comes from the Valles Centrales of Oaxaca and is often used for larger tortillas like tlayudas and quesadillas because of its starch density. It yields a beautiful, natural white masa with bolita’s signature sturdy composition. We also love White Bolita in pozole.
Proudly sourced from a farming community in Estado de México, Cacahuazintle is the star of pozole throughout Mexico. With a soft, floury starch and large kernel size, it blooms into a beautiful, hearty addition to any soup or stew. Our corn has not yet been nixtamalized, so make sure you process it according to your recipe. But good news: This corn is 'sin cabeza' meaning the work of removing the tip cap has already been done!
