Tortillas and Nachos
from tortilleria nixtamal
Dutch Kills CSA is excited to partner with Tortilleria Nixtamal, a Queens-based small business that makes white/blue corn tortillas and nacho chips. The blue corn tortillas are made with organic corn.
Nixtamal is an Aztec word to describe corn that has been partially cooked and soaked with calcium hydroxide, otherwise referred to as cal or lime. Calcium hydroxide is simply the dust that results from scraping a limestone rock. The Aztec would grind corn against the limestone found in the riverbeds, and hence discovered the nutritional benefits of the interaction of this natural element with corn. Visit Tortilleria Nixtamal website for more info.
Each share consists of one delivery each month of our vegetable share season (June–November), for a total of 6 deliveries. Each month you will get 1 lb. of either white tortillas or blue tortillas or nacho chips, depending on which shares you choose. Deliveries will be on the first veggie distribution of each month.
