Crazy Corn

Elote, originally uploaded by Honduras Sprout.

This past weekend we went to a mountain festival in a town called San Juancito. It was a great time and I very much enjoyed the fresh air. The kids had a great time too. I know sister likes something when she asks if we can move there. There was very little electronics in use and it was a nice change to cool nights for cozy sleeping wrapped up in blankets. I haven't had time to compose a proper recap of the weekend, so until then, here is a short post from my other blog. The SPS daily photo blog.

These corn on the cobs are not sweet corn. They are called elote. They have a bland corn flavor. The bucket of corn is being cooked by a heater of some kind in the box with the corn cartoon. You can see the fuel tank with a line under the box. The corn is then put on a stick slathered in mayonnaise and sprinkled with grated cheese that is similar to parmesan cheese. This treat they call "crazy corn".

Here are some photos of a few young kids enjoying their treat.

I have had a version of that here, and it was yummy. (although it doesnt really sound yummy.)

I love that picture of the corn. I don't know why, but it makes me smile, LOL. I can't wait to read what you call a proper recap ;)
