*** Hominy usually comes canned but the corn kernels also come dried.
Boil hominy in a pot until kernels burst open, (including the liquid and add 1 cup water) about 10 to 15 minutes. When cooking with dried hominy, soak dried kernels overnight in water. Rinse, place in a pot, and cover with water. Simmer for a few hours until kernels burst open.
Drain the water and place the boiled hominy in a serving plate.
Mix the boiled white corn kernels, butter, coconut, and sugar in a bowl.
