Packaging: Our "cal" comes in a 2 lb or 4 lb zip bag or a bulk 50 lb bag.
In addition to using cal to slake corn, it can also be used for pickling. In Mexico cal is used to prepping fruits that will be preserved in heavy syrup. Soaking the fruil in cal keeps them from disinigrating while they cook. Additionally, cal can be used to cure the outter surface of clay cooking tools like the clay comal, or cazuelas and Mexican Bean Pots. It is even used for on metal surfaces to prevent sticking.
