Taste The Rainbow: Glass Gem Corn Looks Like Candy


This is Glass Gem Corn. It's a corn varietal with different colored kernels. I would have called it Rainbow Corn myself, but that's just me and I'm way better at naming things than some people. *ahem* Adam and Eve! The corn may look like candy, but there's no way it tastes as good but is probably DECENT lathered in melted butter and rolled around in your mashed potatoes for good measure.

Seeds Trust, a family seed company, got the seeds for glass gem corn from Greg Schoen who got his seeds from his "corn-teacher", Carl Barnes, an 80ish year old part-Cherokee man, in Oklahoma.

You know what's even better than Glass Gem Corn? Glass Shard Corn. It's perfect for when you're cooking for your enemies. TONIGHT, WE DINE IN HELL! Jk jk, in the garage at the kid's table my mom set up.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots of the undigestible rainbow.



Thanks to Karin, who agrees more vegetables should come in rainbow colors so it's not so hard to get kids to eat them.

  • Glass Gem is a flint corn, that is used for making corn flour, not for eating fresh.

    Would it sound "corny" if I said something about "tasting the rainbow"?

  • So is it, or is it not, edible?

  • Yummy! I want some.
