Before everything became about sweet yellow corn, people were all about the blue corn. Blue corn is one of the oldest varieties of corn. Blue corn has a high level of anthocyanins, which give it the blue (or purplish) color. In other words, blue corn has lots of health benefits! I’m going to be honest, I also like the fact that these are purple because they’re cuter than normal cornbread muffins. There. I said it. You should be able to find organic blue corn meal at your grocery store and that is what I recommend. Enough about that, back to the deliciousness that is the blue cornbread muffin. These muffins come together quickly and make a great side to soups, salads, basically anything. Give these a try for Thanksgiving (it is November now, after all) to accompany Thanksgiving dinner. I’m picturing them making a glorious combination with some turkey and homemade mac and cheese.
