Giant White Corn

Since my post about the Price Rite which opened near me, I’ve returned countless times. I have especially enjoyed exploring new ingredients in the Hispanic foods aisle.

One of my discoveries was Giant White Corn. The dried kernels were definitely giant – about the size of a penny. Inspired by the recipe on the Goya package, I prepared a stew with pork, making a few modifications based on the ingredients I had on hand. The result was delicious and I’ll definitely make it again.

A similar recipe can be found on the Goya site here. The modifications I made were:

  1. I used the whole package of corn (1 lb) and a bit more pork.
  2. I didn’t have the spices and the sofrito on hand, so I improvised, replacing some pork broth with water and seasoning with chipotle and cilantro flavor cubes made by Knorr.
  3. Last, I ate the stew with some hot sauce and liberal amounts of fresh cilantro.
