    I use this to make lime water and soak corn in it to make hominy. If you are interested, google how to make hominy. I researched this because I could not find organic hominy and that is what masa is made out of to make corn tortillas. You can also use hominy for many dishes. Love it!

    Thank you Mrs. Wages for making lime available online to us North Americans. Yes, I could probably buy lime much cheaper from an agricultural supply source, but your lime is so white and pure, like freshly fallen snow on a crisp March morning. You are David in a Goliath world. Your little 1-lb bag can nixtamalize a 50 pound bag of corn, yielding over 400 thick, nicaraguan-style tortillas. What better way to save money on food and experience the traditional life? See here how it's done:[...] (Edit: sorry, Amazon removed the link; search the title "How to make incredible tortillas from scratch-- from cheap feed corn!" on google or Youtube)

    After reading the Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers (Brewing Elements), I bought this 1-pound bag because chalk doesn't buffer effectively in the mash. I can attest to that after trying to brew stouts with the soft Seattle water(read like Pilsen CZ). Pickling lime is calcium hydroxide. The PH adjustment worked exactly as planned, and there is absolutely no after taste which might occur if you use too much baking soda. Great value!

    I have not been able to find pickling lime around here, so I was very happy to find it on Amazon at a reasonable- though not especially cheap- price.

    I particularly need it to make hominy and masa out of dried field corn. Hominy is also hard to find here, and in a month or so we will be getting various heirloom field corns from a grain CSA; one of the things I want to do with such is make really good hominy (and maybe fresh masa for tamales).

    So, score!

    It would also be nice to use to make crisper pickles; mine do tend to get limp.

    I'm glad to have found it here!

    I looked high and low for pickling lime (doesn't anyone make pickles anymore?) to no avail. Then I found yours! It was just what I needed and was shipped quickly.

    I've had great success using Mrs. Wages Pickling Lime in making Cinnamon Ring Pickles. Everyoney comments about how crisp the pickles are and how good they taste. I've never had a failure using this product and I began using it 25 years ago. It's a proven product and I wouldn't think of using anything else.

    This is calcium hydroxide at it's finest. It's a pain to find it in stores, especially when you really need it. But here it is, on Amazon, at an amazing price. However, it could be better if it were sold by the Kilo, but that's an issue to bring up with the company, Mrs. Wages.

    Pickling lime is used to to firm pickles in the pickling process. It is also used in making low carb, lo cal "noodles" with gucomannon powder and water.
    This is why I bought and used pickling lime. The pickling lime came well packaged in a strong easy to open and easy to close package. The recipe I used only called for 1/2 tsp per batch so this 16 oz bag is going to last a long time.
