WOW! Our Latest Culinary Discovery: Sweet Red-White Corn!

on August 15, 2011

We discovered this unusual corn at a wonderful little local Italian market – we didn’t even know either one existed (both the corn and the market!) until last weekend! It’s a hybrid variety of sweet white corn and red Indian corn – and it’s delicious!!

Sorry for the bad lighting; the kernels are more white than yellow!

DD and I can only manage half an ear of corn with dinner, and I was glad I had reason to break an ear in half! Take a look at the color pattern difference in these two halves of the same ear:

Two halves of the same ear - very different color patterns!

We were enjoying the corn so much, I didn’t think to take a picture of the cob after a bite was taken until I’d already demolished two rows. While some of the rich redness in the kernels fades during cooking, the cob stays ruby red:

Faded kernels, deep red cob!

The differences between red-white corn and regular corn is that the red-white has slightly crisper kernels and a bit lighter corn flavor. I’d get more of this unusual corn in a second; in fact, I’m getting more tomorrow!  😀
