We look down on corn in Europe and the only times i had corn in US it was either burnt or swimming in butter.
If people like corn good for them i will stick with my spuds..
Ever had freeze-dried corn? I bought it for an elderly relative who was not eating. Needed to get some fiber and starches into her. It’s like candy. Crunchy and sweet. Has the taste of fresh corn eaten off the cob (from what you write, I think I know the corn you’ve experienced. It isn’t worth bothering with. Sits in water too long and is boiled days after picking)
