Expert Tips

  • 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.
