Recipe - Corn Bread and Crackers from Blue Corn Meal
Blue corn meal yields blue corn bread and crackers.

The rain has returned to California this week and with it all the cold and dreariness it brings.  Whenever it is cold, the warmth of comfort food beckons.  I’ve been wanting chili and what goes so well with chili?  Corn bread!

Having almost a full bag of organic blue corn meal, I figured I’d try making some crackers too.  The crackers came out with just the right kick so that it pairs well with a slice of light cheese or hummus.  The corn bread was the perfect partner to my experimental chicken chili bake.

As with all snack foods, please enjoy in moderation.

Both recipes below are adapted from Arrowhead Mills.

  1. That cornbread looks so good, and pretty too. I was telling my kids the other day about blue corn and they didn’t believe me. Here in the UK we’re a bit limited in what kinds of corn we can get. It’s all yellow. I managed to find some mottled Mexican corn on the cob and bought it for them and they thought it had gone bad because of the different colours in it! Taking them to Seattle this summer and I’ll make it my mission to buy them every kind of corn we can find. I’ll also try and remember to buy some blue cornmeal to bring back. 🙂

    1. Thank you Ruby! I was happy that the cornbread came out blue and the taste is a bit sweeter but nuttier due to the almond milk. Have a great time in Seattle with the kids and I’m sure a visit to Pike’s Place Market will yield amazing food and floral finds!
