Corn meal is one of the must have items that I try to keep stocked up on in my pantry. However, these last few months, corn meal has been very difficult to find, and the price has shot up tremendously. After searching every aisle at several supermarkets, I could only find the measly little 1 pound bags and they have gone up to $2.49 and $2.59 depending on the store, a huge jump from three months ago when the price was $1.79. In one store, I found the corn meal in the specialty flours section!
Good thing I have some in the pantry, but I'm thinking that I'm going to have to invest in that grain mill sooner than I anticipated. Popcorn is still available at the same prices for now.
