Sweet Corn

I don’t think I’m unique in being bought up to think of corn as a vegetable. It wasn’t until I moved to Thailand that I found out corn was really a dessert! Fully ripe sweet yellow corn is almost exclusively found in desserts and other sweets, as well as steamed or roasted fresh corn.

I don't think I'm unique in being bought up to think of corn as a vegetable. It wasn't until I moved to Thailand that I found out corn was really a dessert! Fully ripe sweet yellow corn is almost exclusively found in desserts and other sweets, as well as steamed or roasted fresh corn. On the broad plaza in front of Chiang Mai's reconstructed eastern Tapae Gate, an old lady sells roasted sweet corn. She's there most days, unless there's an event using the plaza, from late afternoon into the evening. The corn is roasted over warm coals.
