The Wa y to make Good HomI.
Messrs. Editors: I have accider.tally
discovered how to make hominy perfectly
white and clean without going through
witli the usual repeated washings .esorted
to by cooks, and if you consider it worthy
a publication, you have the receipt In the
few following words : Srnk the corn you
intend having groutnd into grits just two
minutes, and while wet send it to mill ; if
ground while moist the husk all becomes
loose, and are easily separated from the
cracked corn by the simple process of sil.
ting through a course seive.
About six weeks since 1 sent a boy to
mill on hors eback with a lag of corn to be
ground into grits for hominy. In crossing
a creek near the mill the bag slipped
of' into the water ; without waiting to dry
the corn the boy had it grouan arid when,
the grits ware used they mae tnost beau
i iful horniny, so itch whiter thin ordinary
that I attributed it to having selected the
corn. The next week I sent some of the
same kind of corn, but the'hominy was..by
no rmeans so white, ' ter hearing fronr
the miller that the c.rn was damp
n hen it came to the i I concluded that'
must have the cas t lie tidweek.
I purpoely wet the corn, and the result
was most beautiful hominy. Since then I
have used none but the whitest hominy,
nor will your readers ever use any other
if they once test this experiment.
