Sorry Jim, the roasted, or toasted, Bay Corn stands are mostly in areas where migratory workers flourish. South Texas and southern Calafornia are good places to find them. Be sure they have some fresh melted butter for dipping. You can roast them at home w/ a small Hibachi Grill. I like a dash of good hot sauce mixed w/ the melted butter. Use more hot sauce (Frank's) and you have a Buffalo Bay Corn dip. Use Lousiana Hot sauce and you have a Cajun Bay Corn dip. Cook the corn in that stuff and you have Buffalo, or Cajun, Bay Corn. I like the roasted and dipped version best. The ways to make Bay Corn are almost endless! Just don't try to take it off the cobb.. :~)

For those who have not tried the Reese brand Bay corn, it is twice the size of the cheeper kind, yet the cobb is still just as tender. It is by far my favorite.

NYNM, daaa, I remember now about the kangaroo corn! That may be how the first growers got the idea for Bay Corn? But, what's in the recipe section? The other Bay corn thread? Oh, fame is a fleeting thing!

I prefer my Bay Corn either as a side with fried eggs or on a burger. Nothing beats a Bay Corn Cheeseburger.

Mom, I have had a Bay Corn Dog but never a bay Corn Burger. Neat idea! Do you split the bay Corn in half lengthwise or make tiny slices?

Either way. It's a matter of personal preference.

I like mine fried crisp, but some people prefer it more rubbery.

Now did we get this one?:

http://www.pechsiam.com/canned_babycorn.htm

It clearly says: "Whole bay Corn are a superb addition to Salads, Stir-Frys, Stews and Cocktails, or simply hot with butter."

I personally like the bay corn in my martinis. And I do add a bit of butter....

I dont think its even planted here in the Myrtle Beach area yet.
There are tons of fields all around me and havent seen anything yet.
Which surpises me... huh......

Sad but there are no major U.S. Bay Corn growers. I have looked at every can and jar I could find. It is all from outside the U.S..

Hmmm, has anyone ever seen Bay Corn actually growing?

Here is lots of lovely Bay Corn for you all to feast your eyes upon. These fine specimens were up for sale at a small grocery store in Peterhead, Scotland. They were grown in Egypt according to their packaging

Roossy, I think all Bay Corn is grown like in your picture.

I knew Mom's corn was from Scotland. I kinda sounded like I didn't though.

PapaJoe, I think I am going to sell my company and become a Bay Popcorn street vendor.  I just found the right piece of equipment.

It holds enough pre-popped corn for 300 24-oz. servings (213 1-Liter servings).

Down here in the Chesapeake area, we have a lot of Bay Corn that has a sweet-ish flavor. Probably the influence of Southern Cooking.  I grew up on Cape Cod and the corn that was grown near the bay there had more of a fishy taste.  Do you think that might have something to do with the Indians showing the Pilgrims how to plant a hill of corn with a dead herring for fertilizer?

Brilliant Fried One! That may be the greatest historical discovery since I proposed, back in the 60's, that birds were just feathered dinos.

Oh, and yes, Chesapeak Bay Corn may be the most famous Bay Corn of all.

PapaJoe........remind me to post a great recipe I found for rotisserie Stegosaurus.  Since it's rotisserie style, stuffing with Bay corn is not a good alternative

Here is a Corn Haiku with a story and dance. It reminds me of my walks through the Bay Corn Fields of South Detroit as a young Man. I lost my Virginity in a Bay Corn Field.

Alas, I have been informed today that the 2013 crop of Bay corn will be "underwhelming".  It seems the main crop was sown underneath the fiscal cliff.  When that whole cliff collapses, there will not be much Bay corn to share.  On the good front, supplies of denatured spirits will be in plentiful supply to hell drown your sorrows.
 
May you all Have a Happy, if not prosperous, New Year!

The typo was unintentional, but seems apt
