Blue Corn Update

Well, my Blue Jade corn is coming into its own!  When ripe and ready to pick, all the kernels turn a dark, dark blue--which lightens up to a cheery royal blue when cooked.  So far, I've picked three ripe ears, each of them about the length of my hand.  They make a wonderful snack to munch on.

As far as their taste, they are sweet.  Not as sweet as the ubiquitous Peaches & Cream sold at every roadside stand, but they are sweet enough to savor.  The sad thing is that I only managed one ear per stalk, so my feasting is limited.
