Default Babycorn - cooked or raw?

Hi everyone.

Picked up some babycorn today as it was on offer in Aldi.

Just wondering if i have to cook it or can I feed it to her raw? If i do have to cook it, how do i do that (i dont eat corn so i have no idea haha)

Also, if i feed her fat free cottage cheese, how regularly can she have it?

Thanks in advance

You can cook it or give it plain, it's up to you. If you don't eat it, then there's probably no benefit in cooking it so you can feed it raw

I only offer a bit of cottage cheese once a month or so. It can be beneficial on occasion, but too much is hard to digest. Best wishes

Thanks Drago. I will see what she does with it later.

I was eating some fat free natural yogurt last night (I can eats bucket loads of that stuff) so offered her a teeny tiny amount on a spoon and I have never seen such a comical look on her face! Needless to say she didnt want to be anywhere near it. More for me!

Pip loves baby corn raw or steamed, not tried her with cottage cheese, but she does like cream cheese, spreadable soft cheese and most hard cheese, she does rather like white stilton with apricots, oh and avocado to name but a tiny amount of Pip's likes

I give it raw but cooked would be fine too. I cut a couple of slices out of the middle of one, sort of fairly thick slices. So they are nice round circles of it

Like the corn, you could do either. Duncan prefers his steamed oddly enough, but it's your choice

Some hams enjoy certain veg cooked but the only things that actually need to be cooked are potato & sweet potato other veg is fine given raw.
