Ok, so yesterday I went to a local fruit stand with my dad in Castlegar. The produce there comes from all over the place in BC, and there was a whole bunch of corn there labeled as "peaches & cream" from Chilliwack, which is in the Fraser Valley (about a day's drive east of here). It was 99cents/cob. While I think that's an outrageous price for corn, I was drawn by the "peaches & cream" claim and purchased two.
At home, I husked the corn and got this:WTF?
The top cob is indeed peaches & cream, but the bottom cob is most certainly not.
After cooking, I slathered my corn in leftover feta butter from the other night, and...
The peaches & cream was tough and absolutely flavourless. It was sooooooo disappointing.
The non-peaches & cream tasted sweeter and was much more tender, but it was still not much better than the corn from the previous night.
Well, that concludes my corn experimentation for this summer. It's either a shitty year for corn in the west, or I was just too spoiled out east.
