On Fathers day my daughter brought home some Sweet White corn from the local I.G.A. store to go with our meal of Rib eye steak and all the goodies
that go with it.
After doing the grilling and getting everything ready for the meal, i put the corn in the steamer for 5 minutes,(we like it crispy here) We all sat
down for a most pleasant meal and all started eating away, when i got to my piece of corn , I took a big ole bite and went "YUK!" this corn taste
like dirt! remember, it was sweet white corn, so my kid took a bite of hers and said the same thing, YUK!..it was really bad tasting. I then said to
my kid, hey, i have some from our garden still in the freezer from last harvest, want me to get some out? sure , she said. After steaming MY corn for
5 mins. we tried it, it was awesome tasting.. Hmm, i was not sure what to think about this situation. On Monday i went back to the local I.G.A store
and got some sweet Yellow corn and took it home to give it a try,YUK! it taste like dirt too..so i went back and got an ear of just the white and
yellow corn(not the sweet kind). same thing, they all taste like dirt(gardener here, i know what dirt tastes like.lol) so, I will wait , i guess
,until the new harvest is ready for human consumption before i buy from anyone around here, usually get some good corn from one of our local guys. My
point is this, the store bought corn is really bad this year and tastes like crap,Probably Monsanto brand
Anyone from different areas try any corn yet? let me know what you found and if it was o.k. I live in Eastern Washington...
