I am giddy for Sweet Corn this spring!
Don’t you just love it when spring rolls around and we can get fresh vegetables again? While maybe not “Local” for all of the US, we can start seeing American produce on our shelves from Florida and other states. It’s so exciting to me. What produce do I wait for especially? Well tomatoes for sure and also sweet corn!! Yum yum yum. Corn on the cob, all smeared with butter and salt…it’s the food of the gods! My kids love to take it outside and shuck it for me. I think the preparing of corn on the cob on the grill or the stove makes us all excited for the summer ahead.
When I was a child, my mom grew sweet corn in the garden, but the raccoons and deer loved the corn too and would just mutilate it. It was such a disappoint to watch it grow, smell the sweet aroma of the corn silk in the morning dew and then walk down to the garden and have everything devastated. That’s why I enjoy going with my kids to a farm stand and picking up corn. The farmers have to deal with all the vermin and not me! From now until the Michigan corn comes in, I am so lucky to have Sunshine Sweet Corn available at my local supermarket.
