Blue cornmeal imparts a blue-violet cast to the bread, a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white cornmeal. It is 20% higher in protein and has a lower glycemic index, good news for those with elevated blood sugar. However it can be difficult to find! Arrowhead and Bob's Red Mill make it and some health food stores carry it in bulk. Of course yellow cornmeal can be subbed for blue cornmeal in the recipe, and regular milk can be subbed for buttermilk if you follow adjustments noted below. I love to bake cornbread in a preheated cast iron skillet for the crunchy brown crust and quicker baking time.
