just a question

I don't really have anything to post today.  But, I do have a question. 

Why isn't there any sweet corn here in Mexico?  Or, is there and I just can't find it?

I remember being younger and there was a family that lived down the street from us that sold corn.  Glorious sweet corn.  I mean, I did live in Indiana.  I believe that people not from Indiana think that all there is in Indiana is corn.  Which is not true.  But there is plenty of corn there. 

I want some of that sweet summer corn on the cob.  The corn on the cob here is hard as a rock.  I can boil it for a thousand hours and it never becomes tender.

Do any of you have tips on how to get the corn more tender or have knowledge of the whereabouts of some sweet corn here?  Send them my way if so.  Thanks.

I have no tips, but I love the corn in Pachuca. Well, the corn from the street vendors: covered in mayo, cheese, and chili powder. I think they just boil it with seasonings. My husband roasts it though.

Ask your fresh corn vendor for elotes tiernos. It's a smaller kernel white corn, but very soft and kind of sweet. Delicious topped with butter and salt, for those days that I'm craving some good ol' corn on the cob! :)

I have found frozen sweet corn in the grocery store before. I have never seen it in the market though.

At Waldo's, I get this delicious "sweet corn." It comes in a can and is imported from the States.
