Blue Corn is a staple food among the Hopi and is used in many recipes from cornmeal mush and gravy to dumplings, tamales and several sweet treats. Their famous and unique Piki is made from this very finely ground cornmeal and is a pre-requisite at meals during ceremonial dances at the pueblos.
In American culture, Blue Corn chips have become a favorite snack food. Blue Corn is also highly prized for wholesome and colorful blue cornmeal muffins and blue cornbread and pancakes.
