    Charlotte J's Note:

    The prep time is nothing. The long haul comes with all the cooking, rinsing and cooking again and again. I filled my quart jars 1/2 full with the hominy, as it does tend to expand during the processing. Make sure you read the box on how to handle the lye safely.

      Because during the processing, the hominy will expand.
