    PaulaG's Note:

    Blue corn was a staple for the Pueblo Indians of Northern New Mexico. The blue-purple kernels produce a coarser consistency and sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white corn. This bread rises high and proud. This recipe was printed on the package of blue-corn meal I recently purchased.

      My BF declared this the best cornbread he's ever had! This was my first experience with blue cornmeal, and I really enjoyed it, both for its subtle lavender color and for the slightly nutty, buttery taste. I baked in a 9inch cast-iron, and mine actually didn't rise very high, but I think that is the fault of my oven (it's not very good quality, unfortunatly and the temperature fluctuates a lot). It was still very tender and light. We enjoyed with Grits and Greens #102977 for dinner with a little butter. I think the fact that you preheat the cast iron with some oil is what makes this so great- the browned crust was the yummiest. Thanks, Paula!
