By now, you may have heard us raving about the flavor of ‘Floriani Red Flint’ grain corn. We’ve been trying to pique interest in this rare Italian heirloom corn over the past several months, in hopes that it will soon be growing on homesteads and in gardens across North America. (To read more about the history of the corn, see The Return of a Great Corn Variety.)
