Shoepeg Corn

Ask the Test Kitchen

I have several recipes that call for shoepeg corn. What type of corn is it? I’m having a hard time finding it in grocery stores. —J.H., Hart, MichiganThe term \”shoepeg corn\” dates back to before the American Civil War. The corn was named for its peg-like shape. Shoepeg has smaller kernels and is sweeter than yellow corn. If you cannot find it at your grocery store, substitute either white or yellow corn in your recipes.
