The versatility of corn. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. Corn gets a bad name these days. Between all the talk of high-fructose corn syrup, and GMOs, it’s easy to forget that corn is an ancient grain that comes to life in the summer. Sauteed with red peppers, chilis, and fresh herbs, corn makes for a brilliant barbecue side-dish. Grind its kernels and you can make anything from tortillas to grits. And is there anything better than fresh baked cornbread with a slab of salted butter? Even some of the finest spirits in the world are made from the humble grain, such as Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey. So, don’t be too hard on corn – it’s an ancient grain that can add variety in so many ways to your summer. I’m Anthony Dias Blue sponsored by CUISINART-fine small appliances and cookware.
