2 Corn

Normal edible corn, as is common in Austria or Germany, can be ground with the hand mill. However, it is more strenuous. There are many different types of corn. Especially in Italy there are very old, particularly hard varieties of which we know that some of them cannot be ground. Unfortunately, we cannot test and list all types of maize.
