I hate corn in Europe we fed it to the pigs and no self-respecting person would eat it....
It is a grain used in a lot of nasty products such as High Fructose and now Ethanol subsidized by the Gov.
A pox on the person who told humans to eat it...
Do you own a flame suit?

We don’t eat field corn here, either. It’s fed to hogs, cattle, poultry, sheep, goats, horses, even farm-raised fish and domestic pets. It’s the gold standard of energy in livestock rations.
Sweet corn is totally different. Too bad you have missed out on that. A taste-bud treat!
Pop corn is da bomb, too.
I think them Aztecs had a good idea ;-)
Gee golly willikers. Welcome to the land of corn fed women...
Cane sugar has fructose as well,and in nearly the same proportions.As for ethanol,the Europeans are already into alternative energy, but you can shove your European potato vodka. I`ll take Kentucky Bourbon over that rubbing alcohol any day.
Someone played a dirty trick on you when they fed you field corn.
When you eat beans with corn complete proteins result, through a process of mutual supplementation (the beans supplement the corn, and vice versa). Some genius stumbled upon that fact and created the bean taco. (Corn and beans aren't the only combination that work this way — but, it does show that corn can be part of a healthy diet.)
Try Silver Queen white sweet corn. You’ll like it.
Gold-n-pearl is another good one. The kernels are mixed yellow and gold.
The lovely, ordinary potato was once upon a time condemned by the aristocracy as unfit for their own consumption. :’)
Some time back, I stayed at a RV camp in Berea Kentucky. The owners had planted several acres of corn for the campers. The park was on the coast to coast bicycle trail and a lot of Europeans wheeled in exhausted every night. I would bring a pot of water to boiling at sunset. When they arrived and were pitching their tents, I'd go into the field, pick the corn, shuck it and have it in the pot in ten minutes. Amazing how much corn these Europeans ate. It was entertaining to watch. A Dutch student set the record: 18 ears.
There is bad corn. Chewy, bloated kernels are bad. Waiting too long to cook ears is another. But there is nothing sweeter than corn right off the stalk plunged into boiling water for a few minutes. Don't even need butter or salt.
In Europe they get pretty full of themselves.
Grilled over a fire, slathered with butter. Simply can’t be beat.
Popped, drenched in butter. Delicious.
Made into grits, topped with butter. Or gravy. Or mixed with shrimp and cheese. Incredible.
Mixed with a little water and butter milk and maybe egg. Baked in a blazing hot frying pan. The REAL staff of life.
You got lucky pigs in Europe. Until the muzzies take over.
The corn that is fed to pigs in the U.S. would not be fed to humans. There are specific varieties of corn grown for animal feed (or for converting to starch or syrup products) that are very different from the varieties grown for people to eat directly. The former are very starchy and tough and are called “feed corn”, whereas the latter are much more tender and even sweet and are called “sweet corn”. Everyone eagerly awaits the first ears of sweet corn in the early summer. It makes a big difference to get it fresh. The taste goes way down if it takes a day or more from the time it’s harvested to the time it’s either processed or you eat it. We have a local farm stand where I’ll get it a couple of hours after it’s been harvested. Take it home, shuck it, pop it in a pot of boiling water. Take it out a few minutes later, salt and butter it and that’s good eating!
I pity your ignorance.

To each their own (taste).
But somehow corn (zea mays) sustained multiple generations of Native
Americans (despite it being deficient in some essential amino acids;
compensated by eating beans with the corn).
Grits man.....learn to eat grits. Grits, butter, salt, pepper, yummmm
Add cheddar yumm yumm
Add shrimp yumm yummm yumm
Yes. Europe grows field corn, pretty much only suitable for animal feed.
Americans grow sweet corn, a much tastier variety, for human consumption.
You haven't tried Olathe Sweet. Slather it with butter and salt and eat with something off the summertime grill. That's good eats.
