FAQs about tri-color corn
Unlike sweet yellow or white corn that has soft, succulent kernels, tri-color corn's kernels become hard as flint when the kernels mature. The kernels of corn have a small amount of soft starch, but the kernels are mainly made up of very hard starch with no sugar in them. When the kernels dry, they shrink uniformly, are dent-free, and keep for long periods of time. Because of the nature of these hard flint kernels, dried tri-color corn is ideal for keeping outside as fall decorations.
While tri-color corn isn't sweet or juicy to eat fresh, you can pop kernels of colored corn. The popped corn will just be white since all corn is white inside. However, if you look closely, you may see a tinge of color in popped tri-color corn.
You can look for tortillas or corn chips made from tri-color corn. Blue or red corn tortillas and chips are quite popular and offer a sweet and earthy flavor. Select specialty stores will sell packages of grits or cornmeal ground from dried tri-color corn. The flavor is similar to the same products made from sweet corn, and you can use colored corn chips, tortillas, etc., just as you would ones made with white or yellow corn.
