Can you use sweet corn to produce corn oil?
Generally, sweet corn production has been directed to specific markets. The demand has tended to be for sweet corn in the form of canned or frozen kernels; fresh corn-on-the-cob; or processed crunches and nuts. Sweet corn could be used in the production of corn oil. For its oil content is high. However, the sugar content is also high. So ground sweet corn has tended to be a slurry sticky business when venturing outside the specific markets mentioned above.

One cup of canned, and drained, sweet corn has 132 calories. Clickon the page links given above for all the calories counts of sweetcorn in its various forms.
We cook it about 4 - 5 minutes in already boiling water, with the corn being added straight to the pot but remember to put butter on it. Or, you could eat it uncooked.
Iowa has produced the largest corn crop of any state for each of the past 14 years. In an average year, Iowa produces more corn than most whole countries. For example, Iowa grows three times as much corn as a country like Argentina.

If you heat sugar and water, it becomes caramel. When making kettle corn, you must mix salt, sugar, and water and heat it in a pan, tossing it with the kernels. This coats the kernels in the mixture.
There is no specific person credited with the invention of sweetcorn cake. Instead, this recipe was discovered. It is known to havebeen discovered by the Mexican culture.
Corn oil is extracted from the germ of the corn kernel. The most common method is the use of a solvent to do it. The solvent can then be recovered and reused. The oil comprises a bit under 3% of the "stuff" in corn, and it takes manufacturing "muscle" to get out as much as possible and do it cost ef…fectively. Corn oil doesn't cost all that much at the store and is widely used commercially. They must be doing it right. Got links if you want 'em. (MORE)
Sweet corn and all corn that we use commercially is annual, and must be replanted every year. There are varieties that have been crossed with Zea Teosinte (a wild relative of corn/maize native to Mexico) that are perennial. . However, these crosses do not produce near as much as annual corn by nat…ure of being perennial. They put much more effort into their root systems and store much of their energy in rhizomes for use the following year. They have been known to live 3 years or more. (MORE)
\nSweet corn (I'm assuming it is on the cob) can be grilled, roasted, boiled or steamed. I don't recommend boiling because the vitamins and some of the taste gets lost in the water.
Sweet corn occurs as a spontaneous mutation in field corn it was grown by several Native American tribes. The Iroquois tribe gave the first recorded sweet corn to the European settlers..
Yes. The two can pretty much be used interchangeably. Smoke points will differ slightly and taste may vary a bit depending on what is being cooked, but for general cooking, oil is oil.
Typically around July, the tassel on top of the corn plant fertilizes the silks (those stringy things when you husk sweet corn) on the ear of corn. After the pollen gets on the end of the silk, it travels down into the ear where it pollinates the kernel. Each kernel has its own silk. After fertiliza…tion, the ear starts forming. Pollination is dependent on when you plant and the temperature outside. So when you see the tassel at the top open up, the ear will start forming in the coming weeks. (MORE)
you can use olive oil as a substitute or sunflower oil. Thanks, big help I was trying to make horse treats and i always am missing something!
Most folks put up an electric fence. Keep it about 8 inches off of the ground and the racoons will stay away.
Ship in a Styrofoam and boxed container with ice packs, and ship: A) Overnight UPS Red, or if you don't want to spend 10x what thecorn is worth, B) ship regular UPS Ground on Monday morning for a 2-3 day arrivalthat does not leave it sitting over the weekend.
It is a test of the efficency or speed of your digestive system. It is the time it takes for sweet corn to pass through the body. it is an easy test because the sweet corn remains virtually intact as it exists the body and as such is eaily recognisable.
You should boil sweet corn for 15 minutes if you are eating it fresh. If you are preparing it for freezing, then 7 minutes is all you want to boil it.
Corn flakes are from food-grade field corn. Sweet corn is pretty much grown for canning, freezing, or fresh eating.
\nThe summer months. It comes to a harvest in September or October depending on the variety, and some ripen earlier.
Fresh sweet corn is a sign of summer, whether it's from the grocery store, farmer's market, or a roadside stand. A true summer barbecue just doesn't seem right without it.. There are many different dishes that use in-season sweet corn, but the best way to savor its flavor is freshly cooked right …off (or on) the cob. Cooking it on a stove top or on the grill are two of the easiest ways. When they are done, just stick in some handles, grab it by the husk, or slice it off the cob and enjoy! (MORE)
All states except Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont produce corn.

To clean sweet corn you simply peal back the outside shuck and remove all of the silks. Once your corn is clean you can boil it to eat fresh or freeze. . If you are freezing your corn you will want to get a corn cutter. It is a neat tool which you slide a boiled ear of sweet corn down and it cuts o…ff the kernels for easy freezing. (MORE)
You can try using corn oil for biodiesel. Corn oil is used for cooking and used cooking oil is used for diesel fuel. Actually, the process of cooking with oil performs the same process on the corn oil as crackling does in an oil refinery. Thus, it would be possible to take corn oil and mix it with …petroleum in a refinery and create diesel fuel. (MORE)
Yes. Sweet corn is an AMAZINGLY simple treat. Just husk and silk, then throw it in the microwave in a damp paper towel for about 1-1/2 minutes per ear. Let it cool a bit while you fetch the butter. BeauEvil
Labs, The ears of a corn plant were originally very small, and not edible to man kind. Once humansbecame more developed as a country we began to identify all of the main chaataristics (of genetics) in corn, and began to mutate their forms to both become larger, edible, and in the latter years, sweet…. Hope that Helps! (MORE)
Corn (maize) is harvested from the field with a combine harvester, then trucked to the ethanol-manufacturing facility. There it might be stored for a while till needed, but then moves into the facility where it's ground (either wet or dry depending on the facility). It then moves, along with some wa…ter, into fermentation tanks where brewer's yeast (a friendly fungus) is introduced into the mix. After the fermentation period passes (I think it's about 48 hours). the mash (ground corn/water/yeast/etc. blend) moves into large distillation units which heat the mash to the boiling point. The vapor moves up through cooling towers which cool the vapor slowly. As it rises, the water vapor condenses first, and is piped away. The ethanol rises to its level of condensation, then gets piped away to the storage tanks. (MORE)
No, sweet corn varieties were first grown by Native Americans. Now a days most of these varieties have been lost and hybrid varieties are the most common. You can still find older varieties at places like Seed Savers and Johnny's Selected Seeds. Country Gentleman and Stowell's Evergreen are two …of the more common, though others are available, particularly from "heirloom" seed houses. GMO, or genetically-modified organism, corn is not available to the home gardener due to the proprietary legal requirements attached to the use of the seed. (MORE)
Straight corn oil cannot be used directly as a fuel in any engines. It must first be refined in a similar way to the crude oil which comes from underground oil wells. One way is to use the corn oil as the raw material for the production of a fuel suitable for internal combustion engines: first fe…rment the corn oil and then distil the resulting "brew" to make ethanol. Ethanol is an alcohol that can be used directly as a fuel for gasoline engines and it can also be used as a good "fuel supplement" when mixed - in small amounts - with the normal diesel fuel that is used for diesel engines.

Corn syrup tastes similar to honey, and in many cases is used assubstitute. Powdered corn syrup is a corn syrup that comes inpowder and is sweet.
any corn can be made to be sweet. you boil water and the corn to make fuctose glutose and you have sweet corn Answer Sweet corn normally is sweet because of two genes, the su 1 (sugary) gene and the sh 2 (shrunken-2) gene. If the su 1 is recessive, you have normal sweet corn such as the hybrid …Golden Bantam Cross. If the sh 2 gene is recessive, you have a supersweet such as Supersweet Jubilee. The very sweetest sweet corn varieties have both genes recessive, but are somewhat difficult to grow because they have very little starch reserves in the endosperm of the seed. (MORE)
It goes brown or if it is really bad it goes black. So if you have black or brown sweetcorn, Don't eat it.
To remove the husk, or outer covering, from an ear of sweet corn, grasp the silks at the tops between thumb and forefinger of both hands, then quickly pull apart in opposite directions. The husk will rip and pull away from the ear, though one side usually stays kind of stuck to it. Just continue the… process till you have removed all of the husk, then gently (a small brush helps) rub off any remaining silks. (MORE)
No, not necessarily. It depends - if you eat tons and tons of it, and eat it over your calories burned, then yes. It will make you gain weight. But eating it in moderation and combining it with your calories won't make you fat or anything.
What makes you fat is eating too many calories - wherever they come from. Sweet corn isn't any better or worse from that perspective. If it fits in your calorie allowance you can have it.
Yes, but it's only two grams per one-cup serving of cut kernels. One gram is saturated fat.

Not very effectively. The tassel begins its drydown almost as soon as it has completed pollen shed, and just slowly dries down as the plant finishes maturing. The best way is still "hands-on"; that is, looking for dark brown, dried up silks at the top of the ear husk, and gently squeezing the ear to… see if it feels "plump". If you produce one variety consistently, over a period of a few seasons you can count the number of days from when half of the ears have exposed silk until they have achieved the degree of ripeness you lke. For example, we used to grow one variety of sweet corn for a local cannery. After a few seasons, we knew that it would be ready for harvest 19 days after half of the plants in the field had silked out. Remember there are differences between varieties and growing areas, though, so you just have to learn your own. (MORE)
yes you can use corn oil for this and they even turn out better. :]
It varies from year to year, but US farmers produce about 12 billion bushels of corn every year. 2012 was an exception due to extreme drought in the center part of the nation.
No, they have almost nothing in common. You can use many different vegetable oils instead of corn oil, sunflower oil for example. If you don't have light corn syrup, substitute 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup water. If a recipe calls for dark corn syrup, use 1 cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup w…ater. (MORE)
Some 30 ears of corn were devoured two nights ago. I set out a trap thinking it must be raccoons (and it might have been) but I captured a skunk in my trap. There is, I know, a whole family of skunks that live next door. I am betting that skunks do eat corn.
the region that produces more corn is the midwest and north midwestern north america and the state that produces / produced the most corn is iowa
Fresh sweet corn contains significant amounts of both vitamins A and C. The amount in the canned product is significantly less.
Mostly corn and soybeans, but some hay, wheat, oats, and other crops are produced as well.
I am not sure,but I've heard that oil hair are very useful for hair growth.
The estimate I got several years ago is at least 80% of the corn grown in my area is GMO. That percentage is higher for the entire nation and is for field corn. Sweet corn has been approved by the USDA, but how much will be planted is not yet known.
