  1. Nice post, Lado! We call it ‘maize’ here in Ireland, as for us ‘corn’ means generally all cereals like wheat, barley, oats, etc. We grow it a lot here, but only for animal feed, because there is not enough sun to make it sweet. During the Great Famine in Ireland (1840s) maize meal was imported to help the starving people, but most did not know how to cook it properly and it often caused stomach injuries.
    But I am very fond of sweet corn, as well as of maize bread 🙂
