I'm from Nebraska.. the only corn capital of the world by the way.. lol .. and I have never had sweet corn gelato. I think it sounds delicious.. as long as there are no actual kernals in there, that is, you know how picky I am! lol

I have never heard of such a thing. But then, why should I be surprised? Corn is in almost everything else we eat, so why not gelato! lol Thanks for the interesting post.

Gelato and ice cream is never out of season in my books. Sweet corn ice cream or gelato has been on my "things to try" for a long time. I'm glad to hear frozen would work, since I've got a freezer full of wonderful Colorado sweet corn. Thanks for posting the recipe.

I actually have had this in the past and it was good.
Also had Guiness stout ice cream and it too was good.
To all I say: try this corn flavoured ice cream.
