From Oaxaca, With Love
There’s little not to love about White Olotillo, which comes from the coastal region of Oaxaca. We’ve found that it has a slightly higher natural oil content, making for a more concentrated, decadent corn flavor that lingers on your palate. It’s a workhorse varietal 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. Its versatility makes it perfect for our best-selling Heirloom White Corn Masa Harina.
