Baby Corn

Baby corn has a great sweet taste and crunchy texture. It lacks the strong corn flavour of the larger variety. Baby corn cobs are widely used throughout Asia in stir fry and braised dishes. If canned baby corn is used, simply drain the liquid and add corn during the last moments of cooking. Baby corn is also used a vegetable in many appetisers. Use it as an edible skewer and mould a small amount of seasoned pork mince around each and steam for 10 minutes.
Refrigerate fresh baby corn immediately to retain freshness and sweetness. Unhusked baby corn can be refrigerated for up to a week without losing its taste.
