This, my farmsisters, (if you don't know already) is called 'huitlacoche (pronounced whee-tla-KOH-cheh), aka corn smut, aka fungas, aka Mexican truffle!!! Who would've known? I sure did not when hubs brought it in out of my garden! I thought I grew a freak and wondered if the garden had gotten too much rain? ( it has) So I posted this pic on my garden site and with over 60 hits plus, people were CONGRATULATING me for having produced such a delicacy! Lol, had I known before I tossed it with the other rotten veggies I would have taken to our local Mexican restaurant and surprised them!! How ' bout that??

WOW, Never heard of that!

There is never a road so long that there isn't a curve in it.

I know, I hadn't either! However this wasn't the first time I'd grown it! I've had this several times in the past and chalked it up to a rare deformity! Ha!

I never heard of such a thing, Dianna! I wonder if it rates right up there with a truffle!?

OH MY LUCKY YOU! I love corn smut! We learned about it when I was becoming a Master Gardener. Mix it with salt and garlic - YUM! I did not think it would be good, then they served it to us and it was delicious, especially on tortilla chips. I am curious though. Who was the FIRST person to look at it and go, ďOH! That looks yummy. Let me try to EAT it!Ē LOL
