In this episode of Eat My Globe, our host, Simon Majumdar, looks into the history of corn. From its origins in Mexico, and its spread throughout the Americas and the rest of the world, corn has played a role in trade, through migration of peoples – whether voluntary or involuntary – and through colonization. And particularly, corn, and the Native peoples knowledge in growing and preparing corn, played a role in the survival of the early colonists in what would become the United States of America. But corn has uses beyond food including in the making of toys and furniture, as currency, and livestock feed.
