Tennessee Red Cob


Tennessee Red Cob (white with red speckles) - Corryton, TN

This important Southern heirloom variety is grown organically in Eastern Tennessee. Though it is a soft white dent corn, it has a red germ which gives a unique color and distinctive aroma. Flavor profile is malty and toasty and has frequently been compared to “Cream of Wheat”. The same flavor that makes it a natural choice for grits has also made it historically favored to produce whiskey. Tennessee Red Cob is at its best when milled for fine grits and cornmeal which cook in quick time.

Available as grits, cornmeal, and corn flour.
