Frozen Corn Smut is a culinary delicacy that has the appearance of vegetable ash coated and bloated shaped kernels, pronounced wee-tlah-KOH-cheh. Its flavor is smoky sweet, a combination of the fungus resembling the sweet corn flavor along with the ashen earthy undertones the fungus creates. Taxonomically, it is not a mushroom; it is actually classified as a fungal disease that corn cobs develop within their stalks. 

The fungus attacks the kernels, replacing them with a blue-black, mold-like substance that hardens. Pair with cheeses, squash blossoms, shrimp, lobster, monk fish and scallops. Add to soups, tacos, quesadillas and salsas. This is shipped in a bag, without the corn or corn husk attached. 

Keep Frozen until ready to use. We do not recommend refreezing. Once defrosted, use within 3-4 days!
