Baked Dried Sweet Corn Casserole & you make it in the Crock Pot!

This is a very different corn side dish! It uses dried sweet corn that Lancaster County is famous for! Dried Sweet Corn has a slightly nutty flavor that just adds layers of flavors to this simple dish! The custard that develops is a creamy egg custard which compliments the corn! ENJOY this taste of Lancaster Dutch Country, Foodies!
1 package ,7.5 OZ Dried Sweet Corn ( I used Copes Corn our local corn company) IF you can not get dried corn you may use thawed frozen sweet corn but you will not get layers you will have delicious custard with corn throughout the casserole & it is delicious made this way too!
5 Cups Cold Whole Milk
5 TBS Butter Melted
1 TSP Salt
3 Heaping Tablespoons Sugar
5 Beaten Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla
2 TSP Parsley Flakes
Spray your crock pot with cooking spray. In a large bowl beat eggs & milk. Add the sugar, parsley, vanilla & dried corn beat well. Add melted butter & beat again. Pour everything into your crock pot & cook on low 4 hours. The custard should be set when done. This will bake in the crock pot perfectly. You will have a layer of delicious sweet corn on the bottom with a beautiful custard on the top with the parsley covering the surface! This side dish is a must for many Lancaster County Holiday Dinners! Great for pot luck suppers too! 
Just look at all of that custard with corn layer just barely visible in this photo. The liquid is mostly butter & juice from the corn & from the first photo you can see this serves up in beautiful portions! HAPPY EATING FOODIES!
