Freeze-dried corn in central CT? Anyone? Anyone?

kattyeyes Aug 11, 2012 06:32 AM

Know where I can buy freeze-dried corn other than online? I'm not opening a bakery, I just want to try to make the corn cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar.

MISSES
Whole Foods USED TO carry it, but no longer does.
It's Only Natural Market in M'town doesn't sell it either.
Garden of Light in G'bury never picks up the phone...I may swing by in person.

So, anyone? Got any HITS for me? :)

    Did you try Elm City Market in New Haven or Foodworks in Guilford?
    But I have a feeling that online is your best bet.

      Hey Kat,

      I'd never heard of it. Where have you had it and how have you had it and how will you use it. I see that Amazon gets about $24 for 24 oz. so it's not cheap, buth their reviewrs all rave about it. It sounds interesting.

          Thank you, geminigirl--so funny, even the guy at Whole Foods didn't know they were closed and he's a little closer than I am. :)

          chefstu, no, but I will check, thanks! I found "Simply Sweet Corn" at Nuts.com (HEE HEE, great URL), $4.49 for 5 oz. No idea how much for shipping, though. And am thinking I may as well try some other freeze-dried goodies if I go that route.

          junescook, I've never been to Momofuku Milk Bar, but read with interest of their corn cookies elsewhere here on the playground (CH). Here's the recipe I wanted to try:

          It's also used in Momofuku's crack pie. More info here:

          Just ordered "Just Corn" on Amazon (4-pack of 4 oz. pouches), $20.38...and no money even left my hands! Paid for it with rewards points from Discover. WHEEEEEEE!

            I was just at Target today (granted, in North Smithfield , RI) and noticed in passing that they were selling freeze dried sweet corn and peas. It was the Archer Foods brand in the freeze dried fruit/veggies section. Looking briefly online, I think they may sell the corn separately at the store. I just did not really look long enough to notice, sorry.

              AHHHHHHHHHHH! Now how crazy is THAT?! Well, that's good info for other corn seekers (maybe even me) in the future. :) Gotta see how these recipes turn out once I get the goods, though I've read the corn is even good just for snackin'.

              I have been wanting to try that recipe! Momofuku actually sells the corn powder on their website, its $6 for 2 cups http://momofukustore.com/mixes.html

              And for you lazy people, you can also buy the cookies on the website!

                I will report back when I get the corn and make the cookies. :)
