Heirloom Blue Bolita Corn (Oaxaca)
$13.25 – $60.50
(Video above^^^From Milpa to Mesa–translation: “From Corn Farm to Table”–is a preview of the kernel-to-masa process that turns heirloom corn into fresh masa.)
Sourced from Oaxaca’s central valleys, the bolita landrace is the backbone of Oaxacan tlayudas, the large-format (13″-15”) tortillas and tostadas found throughout the region. With its dense, crystalline starch, it’s easy to see how this landrace can support the structure of such a large tortilla without falling apart (the texture will have a more toothsome finish, you’ll notice).
We love bolita’s deep range of colors and the way it blooms when nixtamalized (we’re all about its pozole application, too).
The blue varietal yields a solid blue masa with a grassy, earthy finish.
