    “Why not just buy cornmeal?” you may be asking yourself. Much of the conversation online surrounding growing and grinding your own corn concerns GMO and pesticide concerns. Beyond that, however, is the fact that many types of cornmeal available on grocery store shelves have been refined/degerminated. By removing the germ from the whole grain, the product will have a longer shelf life. However, that oil-rich and vitamin-packed germ is also where a lot of the nutrition lives. Grinding your own meal means you can preserve the whole grain aspect with less worry about rancidity. Simply grind meal as you need it, or store small batches in your freezer for maximum preservation.

    Original recipe makes 8 servings depending on the bellys
    1 1/4 cups cornmeal
    2 1/2 cups water
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Directions

    Mix together cornmeal, water, and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    If using as cereal, spoon mush into bowls and serve with milk and sugar, if desired.

    If frying, pour mixture into a loaf pan and chill completely. Remove from pan, cut into slices, and fry in a small amount of oil over medium-high heat until browned on both sides. Serve with sauce of your choice.

    How to store popcorn to extend its shelf life?

    The best way to store popcorn is in its original air tight container with a tight seal in a cool dark place like the pantry, away from the stove or other appliances that may produce heat. It is not recommended to use the fridge or freezer to store popcorn because they will dry out faster and its shelf life will be shortened. Proper food storage is the key to extending the expiration date of all foods.

    To survive the economy one could buy the best possible food grade wheat. Use a stone mill and bake your own bread in a sun oven. These mills gets imported from places like Germany. Have a look – maybe you can find them in your country. http://www.gonatural.co.za/stone-mills-grain-rollers/
