Sweet Corn is Delicious

Ears of corn are edible and delicious when grilled or prepared many other ways while still on the cob. When the kernels are removed from the cob it can be made into salsa, soup, fritters, succotash, and cornbread. Corn can be made into flour, cornmeal, corn syrup, and corn oil, ethanol, and whiskey. 

Features.

Corn plants are tall and sturdy and will provide shade for other vegetables in the garden. They create a great opportunity to plant and grow lettuce and spinach and other plants that will bolt in the full heat of the sun. Planting corn can also provide a living trellis for other crops in the garden like peas. Don't plant corn next to tomatoes.

Benefits.

Sweet corn is mainly composed of carbs and fairly high in fiber. It has a small amount of protein. It is a good source of antioxidant carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin, and yellow corn may promote eye health. Corn is also a rich source of many vitamins and minerals. It can be a food supplement for animals.
