Pearl Corn – Pretty and juicy

I found these pretty and juicy looking pearl corn at the supermarket. They are bigger than the regular corn and look fresh. I bought two stalk for RM5.80. There are white and yellow kernels.

I steamed it and found them to be too juicy and watery. With each bite, the juice squirt all over. I prefer the regular corn as they taste milkier. Later, I checked the internet and found that pearl corn is ideally eaten fresh. It does indeed taste better fresh as it is sweeter and juicier.

    […] Ok lah, give me a few minutes because I am mid way steaming corn for your son. (You know the song? – buka sarong, nampak bulu, buka bulu, nampak biji, buka biji, nampak batang….sing to the tune of In The Cavern) […]

    Yup yup… indeed they are best eaten fresh! You can find them in abundance when you visit Cameron Highlands. I’d love to get my hands on some right now but I don’t think they sell these in KL.
