One of the simplest and greatest foods in the southern canon: golden hominy.

I like it simmered low and slow with chicken stock, onions, and smoked pork Our friends in old Mexico cook it much the same way but hit the cook pot with plenty hot chiles. A squeeze of lime juice at the end will fortify the dish most pleasingly.

Dried hominy kernels plump up to a factor of 10. The amount pictured will feed eight people at the end of the cooking session.
