Red Flint Corn Polenta Integrale | Variety: Identity Preserved Floriani

Grown organically by Fritz Durst Farms in Capay, CA *Note that each batch has its own unique milling characteristics. Some may be more coarse or fine than others. Floriani Red Flint, a rare heirloom corn traditionally grown by Italian Alpine farmers, was carefully cultivated for a rich, mildly sweet, floral flavor. This luscious polenta pairs beautifully with the rustic flavors of Italian food — earthy dishes of mushrooms, dark greens, and braised and grilled meats. Try our polenta with kale pesto or as a savory breakfast.

About Community Grains

Community Grains was founded in 2010 when founder Bob Klein was seeking to source California grown wheat for his restaurant's handmade pasta. Discovering a number of bakers and chefs who were similarly interested, as well as farmers curious about including grains in their rotations, Community Grains began with the mission to help build a local grain economy here in the Bay Area. Along the way we ended up creating a line of beautiful pantry staples that exemplify the Community Grains philosophy: - Delicious Food— We offer flour with great texture, performance and flavor characteristics, challenging common assumptions about whole grain food. - True Whole Grain— All our products include the grain in its entirety and are shelf stable. Our grains are milled without ever separating the germ, bran, and endosperm in accordance with Our Whole Grain Standard. - Transparency and full information— Carving out an alternative local grain economy in part depends transparency and providing full information, so we catalog every batches farm and milling information and use our website to make it available to customers. - Local— All our grains and products are 100% grown in CA and milled on the west coast. We continue to create and maintain relationships between farms, millers, bakers, cooks, expanding our community and sharing knowledge.
