Freeze Dried Sweet Corn
Freeze Dried Sweet Corn is picked and freeze-dried at its peak. The process of freeze-drying involves freezing and then driving the frozen water out of the corn in gas form through lowered surrounding pressure. This preserves the super-sweet flavor and golden yellow color.
Rehydrate by soaking in hot (not boiling) water for 5 minutes before adding to baked goods or salads, if a crunchy texture is not desired. Add to soups, sauces, salsas or stews as is.
Storage & handling

Known globally as maize, corn is the only grain whose origin can be traced to the Americas. Scientists believe that the people of central Mexico developed corn from the indigenous wild grass teosinte at least 7,000 years ago. Corn spread north into the present-day southwestern United States and south as far as Peru.
When Christopher Columbus landed in modern-day Cuba, some of his crew went inland and came across maize being cultivated by Native Americans. It's unclear whether corn was brought back to Europe after Columbus's first or second voyage, but by the early 16th century it was being cultivated on the continent.
While field corn has been grown for thousands of years, sweet corn has only been available since the 1700s. Its high sugar content occurred first as a spontaneous mutation in field corn, and was then cultivated by several Native American tribes.
Today, sweet corn is grown all over the United States, from California to the Midwest to the Northeast.
