George Washington's Yellow Cornmeal
In 1771, after shifting from tobacco to wheat as his main cash crop, George Washington erected a new mill along Dogue Run. The innovative farmer-statesman added a wharf and began sending his finely milled flour by ship to Europe and the West Indies.
In 1791, as soon as inventor Oliver Evans patented his milling machinery, Washington invited him to Mount Vernon to install the revolutionary technology in his own mill. Today you can treat yourself to grains that have been stone-ground by water power at George Washington’s Gristmill.
The 2 pound muslin bag of yellow cornmeal contains yellow corn. Net weight is 907.2 grams. Additional ingredients required: sugar, salt, shortening, butter or oil, flour, baking powder, milk, and one egg.
Please keep refrigerated as there are no preservatives in the stone-ground Gristmill products.
* Allergy Alert: All our Gristmill products are made in a facility that processes cornmeal, wheat, and barley. In addition, our pancake mix is made with corn, wheat and barley.
