just like at sushi samba. only not. chocolo [the corn people eat] is different than maiz [the corn animals eat] and in latin america it's known as mote. same as hominy and...gigantic corn kernels. but i was perusing the aisles of bravo! [new neighborhood grocery store] and found mote pelado-where the tough outer shell has been dissolved away by lye! mmmm delicious! and being stupid i bought the dry corns..which require 16 hours of soaking like dried beans. when really, i should have bought a bag of the frozen. but i digress.
