Let's talk Huitlacoche

This fungi has intrigued me for quite a while now, and I think i am finally to the point where I just HAVE to try making something with it. That being said, I have a couple questions about it!

- Where do you purchase yours?? (please dont say only Trader Joes or I will be so sad! dont have one!)
- What should i be expecting taste/flavor/smell wise?? Corn? Mushroom? Truffle? None of the above? I love all these things and am a very adventurous eater, so I cant wait!
- I have noticed it once or twice in canned form before... is this a good option or do I need to get it fresh?
- If canned is OK, how long does it last once opened? (aka: can I use it slowly or do I need to have a corn fungus party?)
- Whats your favorite recipe for highliting this interesting ingredient??
