El Mexicano Pozole - White Hominy 822g at Mexgrocer Europe. An essential ingredient in Mexican cuisine, hominy is made from corn. The corn is dried, boiled and soaked in lime until moist and plump. This allows for a firmer texture. It is then thoroughly cleaned to remove the hull and lime. This is now hominy. You can use hominy as a side dish or an integral part of the main dish, such as Menudo or Pozole. This tin saves you preparation time - it is ready to use.
