Corn was an important year-round staple for Native Americans and it also played a major role in the early days of our country's history. Today in Arizona and New Mexico, the Hopi Indians cultivate six varieties of corn--white, yellow, red, blue, black and speckled. Breads made from corn are among many favorite regional specialties.
There are many different versions of corn bread and corn muffins, and some are sweeter than others. This authentic one, from the Southwest, is not very sweet. If you want a sweeter corn muffin, just add more sugar, up to 1/3 cup, to get it just the way you like it.
