White corn is often the preferred corn variety for use in Mexican-style and other corn-based foods including tortillas, corn flakes, corn meal, grits and hominy.

Being that I didn’t grow up a Midwesterner, pork burgers weren’t something I was ever exposed to. I know, my Iowa friends are thinking I am crazy! My first attempt at pork burgers was during my first ever Thirty Days of Food where I made sour apple pork burgers. They were delicious, but highly involved. I decided to try a more classic, everyday pork burger. And to go along with this pork burger feature, I have another Iowa pork producer:…
