Mexico: Huitlacoche

3 of 15

Technically speaking, this is diseased corn. But don’t
worry, it won’t harm you to eat it—in fact, this fungus is considered a
delicacy in Mexico and typically costs more than “normal” corn. Spores infect
the corn, turning it black and giving it a mushroom-like flavor. Huitlacoche typically comes up on breakfast menus as a filling in omelettes.
