Flint corn is so called because it has a very hard outer layer that protects the soft part inside the kernels. It is also called Indian corn or calico corn, because most of the ears are multicoloured. Many Canadians aren’t aware that this kind of corn is edible: they only use it for decoration. | Kyla Matton Osborne (#RubyWriter) | 24 Carrot Diet
