Baby Corn, Canned

Baby Corn, Canned
(Baby Corn, Canned) We purchase canned baby corn occasionally as a specialty item for salads, soups, and stir-fries to add a little variety.  Fresh baby corn has a crisp texture and a subtle, slightly sweet corn flavor. Although almost all the baby corn found in the United States is pickled or canned and imported from Asia, where the cost of labor is much lower. Baby cornís miniature size makes consumers think that it grows from dwarf corn plants, but the tiny ears of baby corn are simply immature ears from regular-sized corn plants. Specialty varieties are available for baby corn production, but baby corn can also be harvested from many common corn varieties.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
