LIBERTY - When Bill and Louise Coffman decided to make hominy, they called in the experts.
The experts are 92-year-old Millard Scott, who learned to make hominy from his parents and continued to make hominy until a few years ago, and his youngest and oldest daughters, Comella Hafley and Marie Buck.
The Coffmans have made hominy at their Steeles Knob home in Northern Casey County for the past three years and have decided to make it an annual outing on the second Saturday in October. It's not just cooking and washing the corn. It's a time for friends to gather and sample the vegetable dish that goes back to the Native Americans, who introduced maize to the pioneers.
While the corn boild in one black kettle, pinto beans cook in another one. At noon, the beans, hominy and other home-cooked food are served picnic-style under a shelter especially built for the hominy making.|None***
