Heirloom Yellow Bolita Corn

from 13.25

Sourced from Oaxaca's central valleys, yellow bolita (and the bolita landrace as a whole) is the backbone of Oaxacan tlayudas, the large-format (13"-15”) tortillas and tostadas found throughout the region. With its dense, crystalline starch, it’s easy to see how this landrace can support the structure of such a large tortilla without falling apart.

We love its deep color and the way it blooms when nixtamalized (we’re all about its pozole application, too). It yields a rich, beautiful yellow masa with sweeter vegetal notes that bring to mind carrots and butternut squash.

And while our specialty is nixtamal, this bolita happens to make the best damn polenta and grits we’ve ever had.
