When Columbus came to America in 1492, he brought numerous discoveries back with him, one of which was corn. Originally from Mexico, corn's versatility quickly made it an important food crop throughout the known world and one that is still widely used today. Boasting high amounts of fiber, iron and vitamin A, corn is a healthy and flavorful accompaniment to meals or a satisfying snack all by itself. If you have cooked too much corn, resulting in leftovers, it's also a convenient vegetable to reheat for use when you need it.
