When most people think of eating corn, what comes to mind is sweet corn on the cob, crumbly cornbread, bland tortillas and hot popcorn smothered in butter. There’s much more to this grain than these “modern” choices.
There are “old” ways to eat different types of corn (flour, flint and dent), and different varieties within each type. You’ll want to discover and use different varieties than you can get at the local garden store—ones that you didn’t even know existed.
In this program with Carol, you’ll learn more about the different types of corn, why to have them, and how to use them than you ever have before. She’ll awaken your curiosity and enthusiasm for this amazing edible plant, and expand your horizon on how important it is as a key home production staple.
