Cope's Golden Dried Sweet Corn, 1 Pound Bulk Bag
For generations, John Cope has been producing dried sweet corn from varieties that are grown in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country. These naturally sweeter varieties are harvested in the early stages of maturity, processed, then air dried to remove the moisture, preserve the nutrients, and impart the golden color and toasted sweet corn flavor. John Cope's Toasted Dried Sweet Corn can be used in many recipes, including creamed corn and cornbread.
