Though the striking color is other-worldly, the flavor of this one-of-a-kind jewel is more traditional—slightly less sweet than modern, very sweet hybrids. It was a labor of love to produce an open-pollinated corn that is loaded with beneficial anthocyanins (antioxidants), thanks to its Native American Hopi blue corn parents. Harvest fresh, or wait a bit longer and the sugar subsides, becoming perfect for breads or chowder, or wait even longer to harvest, and use the dried kernels for flour.
