What is Huitlacoche?

Easy to identify from its grey kernels, huitlacoche is a fungal mold that grows on corn. Often called corn smut or Mexican truffle, it’s considered a delicacy with its uniquely sweet, earthy, funky, antique corn flavor. Use the huitlacoche to season soups, saute it with vegetables, stuff it in a quesadilla or stir it into pasta for a dramatic presentation similar to squid ink. We were lucky enough to find this beauty in Minnesota, so ask around at the farmers market, you may be in for a treat.
