  •  I hope it was parch corn! (none)
    That's be easier on the teeth.

    You know the natives were pretty smart when by the time the white man showed up, they had not only bred teosinte into something highly productive but had different strains for: parch corn, popcorn, corn for meal, corn for flour.  They may have had sweet corn as well, but that would have to be a seasonal luxury.

    We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
