Did you know corn smut was edible?
First my tomatoes have blight, now my corn has smut.
I grabbed some gardening books to read on the way to our bike ride today to see what I could do about corn smut.
That’s when I learned that it’s edible.
Actually, what the book said was that the corn that was infected by corn smut is perfectly okay to eat and even the smut was edible.
Do not look for recipes for corn smut on this blog anytime soon….
How about another recipe featuring mustard instead?

If you are looking for a few more grilling ideas or recipes for pasta salads or how to use that overflowing bag from the market…. This could help.
Have a look.
No recipes for corn smut, though…. Promise.
Tomorrow, after I fuss with the tomatoes to try to save them from blight I can fuss with the corn and try to save it from smut.
I don’t think I was meant to be a farmer.
