- 1 cup canned hominy
- 1 cup dried beans
- Cook the beans, heat the hominy, and serve together. A cup of each will do for 6 - 8 people.
- Pop the brittle kernels off the cobs with your fingers and pound or grind them to loosen the tough husks. Put in a pot of cold water and skim off the husks that rise to the top. Soak for 2 days, drain, then spread one layer deep on a clean surface to dry in the sun. Store in a cool, dry place.
- To cook, put the kernels in enough water to cover and simmer for 2 – 3 hours, until tender.
