Amaize Sweet Corn is MY PICK OF THE WEEK!


I just love corn on the cob and wait for it every summer. This corn is the best I have had that didn't come right off the stalk. It is a special variety - non GMO - that is grown along the Snake River in Idaho. Sweet corn is different. It's more than sweet. The mouthfeel of the kernels is crunchy, almost pops, and the texture sets it apart when grilling. The kernels are huge. Amaize Sweet Corn is MY PICK OF THE WEEK! >

Mexican Street Corn Ice Cream


With the success of our Nebraskan cocktail we wondered if we could figure out another tasty treat using the wonderful sweet corn we received from the folks at Amaize Sweet Corn. One of our favorite ways to enjoy a summer night is to have a BBQ by the pool with some delicious fresh sweet corn on the cob and finish up the night with a cold bowl of ice cream. We thought about these great evenings and wondered if we could combine two of our favorites into a delicious savory sweet corn ice cream. Mexican Street Corn Ice Cream >

Amaize-ing Mango Salsa


It’s salsa season! Fresh ingredients are readily available & I had a couple of ripe mango in my fruit bowl, so I couldn’t wait to whip up some amaize-ing mango salsa with this gorgeous white sweet corn I got. This corn is to live for–it’s so sweet & crunchy & tastes so darn good as is–there is no need to cook it at all! And this salsa is great on anything … salads, corn chips, jicama chips, collard wraps, or just by the spoon full. Amaize-ing Mango Salsa >

Amaize Sweet Corn-Truly The Best Corn Ever!


It's summertime and we are all about the summer veggies. One of our favorites is the classic, fresh corn on the cob. I was watching a segment on a health-related news show a while back and was blown away to find out that close to 90% of our corn is genetically modified. I find that really scary to say that corn is such a common go-to vegetable for families. I was thrilled to be introduced to Amaize sweet corn. Amaize sweet corn is bred using traditional methods through hybridization and is not genetically modified. Amaize is grown locally using conventional farming methods.

Amaize Sweet Corn, Pesto and Sausage Pizza


Being from the Midwest, both of us grew up with corn being a major part of our summer, picking corn from our gardens or stopping by the farm stand before dinner. Both of us have memories of sitting out on the deck shucking corn and looking forward to chomping down a bunch of cobs around the dinner table. When we were asked by the folks at Amaize Sweet Corn to try out a couple of ears of their sweet corn and develop a recipe using the Amaize Sweet Corn, we figured we would give it a shot and see how it compared to the stuff that we grew up with.

summer is for corn


I was recently contacted by Amaize sweet corn to try out their naturally grown white corn and I was so excited because we are big fans of corn and I like that it's non-GMO plus corn is kind of a summer meal staple around here - so obviously I said yes. They sent over about 9 ears and we tried it a few different ways to really test it out. summer is for corn >
