Huitlacoche is without a doubt one of my favorite Mexican dishes. Very hard to find outside of Mexico, Huitlacoche is a fungus that grows on the corn plant; corn smut to be exact. I just learned that Huitlacoche in Nahuatl means "Raven's shit". Whatever you want to call it, I love it and I'm thrilled to see it in our garden! Huitlacoche normally grows from the corn kernals; this is how I am accustomed to it in Mexico. Our's is growing out of the stalk. I read that you can cut the stalk so that the fungus will spread to the corn ears. Anybody out there with corn smut knowledge?! My huitlacoche research has me literally drooling on the keyboard!
