CORN, GIANT WHITE - Kosher/Gluten Free



Corn (Maize)is an honored crop that was considered “a gift of the gods” by the Indians of Mexico. The Pueblo Indians and their ancestors the Anasazi relied on corn, beans, squash and chiles for sustenance. These early crops became firmly entrenched in the culture, forming the basis of New Mexican cuisine even before the Spanish arrived.

These hearty kernels are about 1/2 inch in width and length and are chewier, starchier and less sweet than typical sweet corn. Our Giant White Corn, also knows as Peruvian corn or Cuzco corn, add a unique corn flavor to stews, soups and casseroles; they can also be toasted, stewed or fried for a varitey of uses.
