Sometimes when I find uncooked hominy, I cook it at home, but now I use one that comes in a can. Buttttt I always read the labels, and I found one can that has nothing in it, just water. Remember to always read your lables⬅️ Obviously, my first option is always to cook everything at home but if I´m in a hurry or can’t find an ingredient I use canned ones?.
