How Can I Make Dried Sweet Corn for Snacking? Good Questions

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I’m wondering about drying corn for snacking. Years ago I was driving across rural Tennessee and picked up a snack labeled “dried sweet corn” at a farm stand. It was lovely and addictive — not hard like Corn Nuts, but sweet and salty with a great light texture.

I have been trying to figure out how to make it ever since. I’ve found recipes for “parched” corn online, but am not sure if it’s the same thing. Recipes typically call for drying the corn first, then pan roasting it, and I’m afraid the drying will make the corn too hard. Has anyone out there made this? If so, how?
