Blue Blood Corn, also called "BB Corn" (BBコーン, BB kōn), is a giant breed of rare corn that was eaten by Gourmet Nobles as a snack long ago, hence the reason for its name "Blue Blood". It is one of the few rare Gourmet World ingredients to be grown successfully in the Human World.
They mainly resemble larger than average corn plants that seem to vary in sizes, as there were some as big as normal corn, and others growing above 20 stories high.
Structure and PhysiologyEdit
They are all very tough, with their fibers entwined so that the giant birds that live near can't pluck them. It took Toriko many attempts with his Knife until he could cut a small cob. Also, when he attempted to pull it out, he felt as if trying to pull up the entire forest. The big corn is even tougher, as Toriko couldn't even cut its skin nor pull out its kernel, leaving him no choice but to hit the back of the corn with a 5-Hit Nail Punch forcing the kernels out. It is said that there are as many kernels as the number of strands on the corn. It is shown that the kernels grow between and underneath the initial kernels found on the corn.
Cooking MethodEditWhen cooking the corn for popcorn, the kernel must be roasted to a very high temperature. If the timing is off by even one second, the kernel burns and the taste is ruined. Cooking the kernel is a very meticulous and delicate task and takes a day and a half to fully prepare.
If popped, there is enough popcorn for a hundred people. The popcorn itself is quite large, more like cotton candy than actual popcorn, with a fragrant odor of roasted croquettes.
The consistency is smooth and easily travels down the throat. It is so delicious that most people swallow unconsciously upon putting it into their mouths. It is delicious enough to satisfy Terry, a Battle Wolf. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about BB corn is its incredible appetite-stimulating effect; rather than getting full, eating it causes people to feel even hungrier (Toriko noted that he could "eat them to no end") which gives the effect of making other foods even tastier. It is primarily because of this appetite-increasing effect that Toriko chose the BB Corn as his Hors d'Ouvere.
