Whole grain cornmeal, ground from our colorful Kentucky heirloom corn, makes an unforgettably delicious & nutritious cornbread--without using wheat flour. The package includes a quick, gluten-free recipe, mixed & baked in a cast-iron skillet.
The flavor of this cornmeal is legendary, and is also more nutritious! The nutrient rich bran & germ have NOT been removed for longer shelf life. Milling exposes the germ (the seed's life force for germination) to the air, so whole-grain meal can become stale stored at room temperature. Store tightly sealed in the freezer (or refrigerator short-term). This cornbread is so yummy and so quick to make that you likely won't have it around that long!
In 1998, Susana Lein of Salamander Springs Farm acquired seed for an old heirloom corn from Daymon Morgan in eastern Kentucky where it was grown since the mid-1800's. Through intensive seed selection, she developed this dramatically improved corn (Her seed is sold through Southern Exposure heirloom seed catalog in Virginia).
Salamander Springs Farm is a small-scale unmechanized farm managed using permaculture principles and practices. Our corn is grown in a traditional "3 Sisters" polyculture with pole beans & squash. We use cover crops, organic compost and mulches instead of extracted fertilizers or pesticides. Our soil is not treated like dirt - not tilled into dust to erode away - and it is teaming with life and stable organic nutrients which feed our crops natuturally
Salamander Springs Farm grain & bean fields, market gardens, orchard, nut trees and pasture are developed and managed based on permaculture principles.
