I was just watching the new episode of Good Eats. Alton Brown was making homemade tortillas, including treating flint corn with lime, etc...
I was wondering - would canned hominy work? It's already been treated with lye and seems like it would be about moist enough when ground up.
Alternatively, does masa harina flour make a decent tortilla?
Should I just give up on this project? I live in New Hampshire and the odds of actually getting fresh masa are very slim.
