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.

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