Jimmy Red


July 13, 2008 by seanbrock

This has been an incredible project on many different levels.  This corn is from James Island, here in Charleston.  Jimmy Red Corn is nearly extinct.  Thanks to Ted Chewning for keeping this strain alive, he was nice enough to share some seeds with us this year. We ended up growing 1600 feet of Jimmy Red for seed.  The scraps will be used to make grits for the restaurant.  We use liquid nitrogen to ensure that the corn stays nice and cold when it is ground.  Next year, John Haulk corn.
