sprouting corn before nixtamalizing for tortillas?

miss louella | Mar 14, 2014 04:31 PM

I've finally got the hang of going from corn kernels to delicious corn tortillas, but this morning as I was grinding up another batch of masa I started to wonder... what if I soak the corn first? what if I sprout it, even?

So I've got a couple of cups of corn soaking now, will probably nixtamalize half and make some tortillas, and sprout the other half. Just to see what happens.

Anyone have any experience in this realm? Any speculation? Ideas? Advice?
