The consumption of corn smut originated directly from Aztec cuisine. For culinary use, the galls are harvested while still immature — fully mature galls are dry and almost entirely spore-filled. The immature galls, gathered two to three weeks after an ear of corn is infected, still retain moisture and, when cooked, have a flavor described as mushroom-like, sweet, savory, woody, and earthy. Flavor compounds include sotolon and vanillin, as well as the sugar glucose.
Corn husks are the outer covering of an ear of corn. Commercially bought Corn husks are commonly the whole husk and are sun, air or oven dried. For most applications the Corn husks need to be soaked in hot water in order to become pliable. Corn husks are most commonly used to encase foods to be steamed or baked, imparting a very light corn flavor. Corn husks can be used in the presentation of a dish, but are not edible and should be discarded after use. Corn husks are especially popular ingredient in the making of tamales.
