Jimmy Red corn is an heirloom corn varietal with deep roots in Native American food of the Florida peninsula. In the 19th century it was popular throughout Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, as it's high natural sugar content attracted both enterprising moonshiners and cooks seeking the most delicious cornbread and grits. By the end of the twentieth century, this once predominant corn was nearly extinct. Celebrated chef Sean Brock and a dedicated community of farmer have led the charge to bring back this traditional staple, and Brock's collaboration with Geechie Boy Mill of Edisto Island, SC has now made this heritage varietal available well beyond the low country.
