Heirloom Purple Olotillo Corn (Oaxaca)
$15.00 – $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.)
This olotillo is grown in the mountainous coastal region of Oaxaca. 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.
The morado is coveted for its tostada application, which yields a purple grape coloring.
