My experience with smut

Corn smut, that is.

 

I was at a nice Mexican restaurant this weekend, post-Turkey day, and tried huitlacoche, or corn smut. It's a fungus that grows on corn ears and destroys them. The fungus is regarded as a blight in America, but is a delicacy in Mexico. It has "a flavor described as mushroom-like, sweet, savory, woody, and earthy," which is pretty much spot-on. Not the prettiest food, but it's not half bad.

Oh, on the topic of smut... I saw "Frozen" this weekend. The animation is amazing and as an extra bonus the male lead appears to be based on Colby Keller.

Was it spread on a tortilla or something?
