where to buy lime for soaking dried corn?

miss louella | Jan 29, 2009 03:04 PM

I'm trying to make the corn tortillas in Diane Kennedy's Mexican cookbook--have got the dried corn and the (clamp onto the counter-type) meat grinder, but can't seem to locate LIME anywhere. Some of my smartypants pals say I should go to the lumber store and buy the stuff they mix into cement. Are they crazy? It's hard to imagine cement and tortillas sharing too many ingredients.

I'm in Colorado and was thinking of heading to one of the larger Hispanic markets.

Appreciate any help!!!
