I saw this at my grocery store today. Is it a flint corn? Which Chinese cuisines use it? Common dishes to go with it?
Looks like some medium ground yellow corn grits I was getting from a mill in Tallahassee Fla several years back
Generally it’s used to make congee.
It’s very common in Northern cuisines, think Beijing or Dongbei.
Thanks for that tip about Dongbei - it led me to this discussion on reddit, which gave me the phrase 碴子粥, which led me to the below video of a whole meal I now want to try this winter - I think the grits I saw are a little more finely ground but will probably still work!
Cornbread is definitely a dongbei thing.
