I made another interesting produce discovery last week at Safeway. I found Sweet Red Corn! It is beautiful. The only time I had seen red corn before was hanging on someones front door during Thanksgiving. Not only is this corn beautiful but it is delicious and super healthy. The red sweet corn is higher in protein than other types of corn. The main producer of Red Sweet Corn is Colorful Harvest, Inc. They are located in Merced, California. Colorful Harvest is now also growing this corn in Southern California and Florida because it is becoming so popular. I am somewhat am surprised that this corn has made its way across the country to our little corner of Maryland. Since Safeway is a large grocery chain that can be found all across the country, you may find red sweet corn at your local Safeway, too.
I found lots of recipes for Red Sweet Corn on California based food blogs. The easiest and simplest "recipe" was for roasting the corn and then rubbing it with a lime coated in Ancho Chili powder. So simple but so delicious. Check out Colorful Harvest's website for more great recipes for red sweet corn.
