Dent Corn

120 days — 'Bloody Butcher' is an old dent-type corn has been grown in the United States since at least 1845. Its stalks reach ten to twelve feet tall producing two to six ears of corn per plant.

The kernels are striped red or dark red on pink to red cobs. An occasional white ear may appear. 'Bloody Butcher' can be used as roasting or frying corn when young, but it is historically used for flour, corn meal, or animal feed. It is good flavored. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 100 seeds.
Eating Bloody Butcher Corn
I am writing to let those of you at Victory Seed Company know that although I have not bought any Bloody Butcher seed from you in a while, I have been saving seed and growing it for years now. Each year I save back some seed, blanch cobs to eat fresh, and dry the rest to be ground for grits that I eat in winter months cooked with black pepper and salt. I use your Fried Corn recipe every year during corn season but I stop cooking it when it comes time to add the water. I have fond thoughts of corn season only because I like eating Bloody Butcher. My early August birthday is in the height of corn season so I eat corn on my birthday.

Is there a better corn?
Six generations raised on cornbread and homemade buttermilk swear this is the best tasting corn. Until it burned down, we had our own mill powered by a Model T engine.

This corn will volunteer and a single stalk will produce full ears. The experts say that can't happen with domesticated corn seed. This year I decided to try something new and keep Victory looking for something better, if such a thing exists.
