Recipe: this is how to prepare corncob with bacon

The origin of corn occurred about 12 thousand years ago in Mexico and its consumption was introduced to Europe in the 17th century. Its name means “that which sustains life” and for the Mayans it is the main food of their culture. It has spread all over the world because of its ease of growing in any climate. In Mexico they are known as elotes; in Bolivia, marlos; in Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela, tusas; and in Peru, Argentina and Chile, “choclo”.

It has a large number of uses in the world cuisine, it can be prepared in cakes, cookies, soups and even drinks. Currently, like rice and wheat, it is the most produced cereal in the world.
