  • 1 cup boiled white hominy (corn)
  • 1 tbsp salted butter melted
  • 1 tbsp grated coconut
  • 1 tsp sugar or more to taste


  • Mix the boiled white corn kernels, butter, coconut, and sugar in a bowl.
  • Add more sugar to taste.
  • Hominy usually comes canned, but the corn kernels also come dried.
  • Rinse canned hominy with water and boil in a pot until kernels burst open (about 10 to 15 minutes). When cooking dried hominy, soak dried kernels overnight in water.
  • Rinse, place in a pot, and cover with water.
  • Simmer for a few hours until kernels burst open. Then serve.
