I recently bought corn from a local co-op (blue flour corn), with the aim of turning it into masa. I nixtamalized the corn with an alkaline bath that I made from slaked lime. I used 1/4 cup of slaked lime per 10 cups of water. I had 1.8 gallons (30 cups) of water for 3 pounds of corn. After boiling the slaked lime into the water and letting it right for a bit, I added the corn and boiled for a while. Then I let it sit over night for 12-14 hours before rinsing and drying. The corn turned the classic yellow color of hominy (at the ends, it was blue corn) and it smelled of hominy. However, most of the corn didn't puff up to the size of dried hominy you'd buy in a store. Any clues to why this might be?
