I found this simple recipe for making corn tortillas from scratch:
Now, although it's a time-consuming process, it seems simple enough, so I figured I should give it a try. However, I have a couple of problems. Apart from water, I only need two ingredients (corn and lime), neither of which are easy for me to find here in Norway. So, I was wondering:
a) Will canned corn give similar results? I mean, in the recipe the corn is supposed to be cooked (with lime) anyway, so I figure using canned might be a viable option?
b) I understand the lime is added to make the water alkaline. So, if I can't find any pickling lime, could I use some other alkaline ingredient instead? Simplest option here would be baking soda (bicarbonate of soda). But if substituting baking soda for lime, how much would I need to use? I guess baking soda is perhaps less alkaline than lime, so I would have to use more?
