I field a lot of questions about corn and cornmeal and how to absorb more nutrition from it. My answer is that if you wish to use corn, the best way to do so for the average cook is to use Masa Harina. Masa is corn that has been soaked in lime, dried and ground into cornmeal. Store your masa, like all corn flour products, in the freezer.
Masa can be used to make tortillas, cornbread-crusted dishes and more. Due to the change in flavor brought about by the lime, it especially works well with Mexican-flavored dishes. I sometimes make a pan of masa-based cornbread to go with Mexican dishes when we’re tired of rice.
