    Default White vs. yellow corn meal: interchangeable?

    Someone sent a box of Kenyon's white corn meal, intended for Jonny
    Cakes. Not a fan of those, but can I just use it in lieu of yellow
    corn meal?

    ________________________________

    Jonny Cakes: (per their package)

    1 C Kenyon's stone ground white corn meal
    1 tsp. sugar
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 1/4 - 1 1/2 C. boiling water.

    Add water to other ingreeds in a bowl, mix til makes a 'ploppy'
    batter, adding milk to a consistency til it drops off end of a spoon.
    Drop onto a well greased griddle, cook 6 min., drizzle with oil,
    flip and cook ano. 6 minutes.

    Serve with maple syrup, preserves etc.

    I haven't had jonny cakes since moving from RI 27 yrs. ago. I remember
    them fondly. I made quite a few visits to the Kenyon grist mill when we
    lived there. They were nice people and turned out a nice variety of
    products.

    Thanks for the reminder. That may be what we have for Sunday night
    supper this week.

    I have found white and yellow corn meal to be interchangeable, though
    the yellow seems (to me) to have a wee bit more corn taste.

    I think they are interchangeable. I'm sure someone will explain why
    they aren't, though.

    Uh-oh. This is one of those "and that's when the fight started". The best
    to me is yellow meal, freshly stone ground. Polly

    Nonsense. The only difference is the colour of the corn that is ground.
    The manufacturers say it is interchangable.

    I'm not crazy about white chocolate, but I do get a craving for it
    occasionally.

    They are not the same, but they are interchangeable. I like yellow
    better. What you've got to watch out for is "corn meal mix". It's
    something like half cornmeal and half self-rising flour. (which might
    actually work in your recipe) It comes in a bag that looks just like
    cornmeal, and it can really screw you up if you need one and buy the other.

    Wee bit? It's pretty profound to my taste,
    though I wonder how much of that is psychological.
    I despise white corn meal in all its forms for
    that reason. Nevertheless, now that OP has it,
    she should try it in familiar recipies so she knows
    whether she's a normal person or a white-corn-meal-
    loving pervert.

    No, they're not. White corn is to corn what
    white chocolate is to chocolate. Blecch!

    Sure you can. You can also use it to make cornbread or corn muffins. White
    vs. yellow is all a matter of preference. Boli and I used to "joust" about
    this quite a bit. I prefer yellow cornmeal, he prefers white. But really,
    it doesn't matter.

    They are different colors. That may affect the end color of your dish.

    In theory they're interchangeable. In practice, it's a matter of
    taste. I can usually tell the difference. Cornbread made with yellow
    corn meal tastes (to me) like corn. Made with white corn meal, it
    tastes like really, really good sand. :-)

    Depends on what part of the South you call home. In VA, it was white
    cornmeal that was a favorite. I don't think I really saw a lot of
    yellow cornmeal until after I left home. I know it was available and
    obviously used, but not by the folks I knew. I personally like
    it..to me it makes the best spoonbread.
