Corn silk

I知 always hesitant to post a new thread for fear that I知 posting it in the wrong forum, but here it is:

Is there any culinary use for corn silk, besides composting? Are there any non-culinary uses for it?

Intriguing question. I never gave corn silk much thought but your post caused me to do a search for "recipes using corn silk" and I came up with this list of different choices. Might give you something to peruse. It certainly educated me in something I usually just toss into the compost heap.

It never even occurred to me to google it! “Recipes with corn silk” is like one of those phrases that you put into a search engine for that game that was popular a few years ago, to see if you’d get any hits. If you didn’t get any, you won.
