Spent time winnowing white corn seed. Thanks to my girl Theda for cranking the corn sheller as I have a bum shoulder. I have corn to lye with wood ashes. The poplar wood is best if you can get it, gives a smokey flavour to the corn. The best ingredients are natural ones. I’m not a fan of commercial lime gives corn an after taste like soda water. I take 2 days to lye, soaking overnight. Then if I have sap left , I use sap water, adds a hint of sweetness.
