Hominy -

Is, essentially, white Indian Corn kernels with the rough fibrous part removed, broken into particles of uniform size. It is similar to Granulated Cornmeal, but considerably coarser.

A grade of Grits, somewhat lower than that handled by the grocery trade for table purposes, is used in large quantities by brewers.

Pearl Hominy is a larger size Hominy. It is also known as Samp, Coarse Hominy and Coarse Grits.

Hominy is prepared for use by boiling with water or milk. The larger sizes are eaten as a dinner vegetable, the finer product as a breakfast dish. When boiling for frying, always add some flour just before finishing as that will prevent it from breaking and splitting when fried.
