Really? Corn ice cream? Yes, and it's not a totally crazy idea. Apparently very popular in Mexico (where they serve it topped with chili powder or cinnamon), corn ice cream is kid-friendly for several reasons. It has a mild, sweet, almost vanilla taste so picky kids who like the basics won't turn their nose up at it. It's high in fiber and it's also a good source of folic acid. Even better, corn season is RIGHT NOW, so you can make an exotic dish without a trip to a specialty food store, and if you can get locally grown corn it will taste even more delicious. I like a small scoop served with a a split blueberry muffin or (my son's favorite) sprinkled with chopped peanuts.
