Taste The Rainbow: Glass Gem Corn Looks Like Candy

May 3, 2016


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 and peas for good measure. You can buy a 50-pack of seeds HERE if you've always dreamed of growing your own rainbow corncobs to put up your rump. Hey, I'm not here to judge, I'm here to try to grow rainbow cucumbers for the exact same reason. Still, 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 living room at the kid's table my mom set up. Where's my sippy cup?!

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







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

    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.
