These six-inch diameter tortillas are our original fresh-ground nixtamal-based offering. They are made from an organic open-pollinated corn from Lakeview Organic Grains in New York. This corn has a beautiful golden hue and the steam coming off of them is redolent with "corn-ness".
The Wapsie Valley corn we use in these is one of the best tasting varieties we've come across out of the dozens we've trialed over the years. They are on the 'flintier' side of dent corn and so have a hearty toothsomeness that is great in tacos and holds up particularly well in enchiladas, or as quesadillas.

All our products are made fresh each week. Our order cut-off is noon every Monday.
Orders received by noon on Mondays are nixtamalized Monday afternoon and then rinsed, ground, and baked Tuesdays.
Orders placed for pick up are available between 3 and 5pm Tuesdays.
Our reduced crew are following strigent food safety protocols. All your orders are handled with (frequently washed) nitrile glove-covered hands. Your order will be in a dedicated box, bag, or tote depending on size, and can be brought to your vehicle curbside, or else left for you on a dedicated shelf in the front of our shop.
If you're receiving your order by mail, you should see it arrive by Thursday afternoon for most locations in New England, or else by Friday afternoon for most other locations east of the Rockies.
If not eating right away, please be sure to refrigerate your order upon receiving it. These fresh-made products should last at least seven days in your fridge, and up to 3 months in your freezer with no ill-effect.
