I was curious on the flavor of some of my crazy corn, so I decided to cook some up into corn bread and see what I got.
So I took some of my black corn, and plain yellow corn for comparison
And made corn bread -- half yellow, half black.
Is it just me, or does the black corn one look like a brownie? It didn't taste like a brownie, but the flavor was different and delicious. The yellow corn bread tasted like what I'm used to, but the black one was... how to describe it? It had an earthy almost meaty flavor to it. The yellow one tasted like it would be lovely with honey and butter. The black one I wanted to eat with a warm, thick winter stew. I admit I was surprised at how different they tasted... I'm going to have to do more corn taste tests here and start breeding for flavor as much as for beautiful colors.
