June 11th National Corn On The Cob Day

Now here’s a day we can all sink our teeth into, Corn on the Cob Day! Some of us wait all year long for this time of year when the corn finally gets ripe enough to pick and boil, steam or grill. Add a little butter and salt and it’s a party! Sweet corn was first grow for consumption in Mexico, 9000 B.C. (Or at least we think). It was as good a gold back then, and it helped that it was the same color! Anyway, it is a fun food to eat and it’s good for you as well. Don’t forget those little things you stick in the end of the cob to keep from burning your fingers!

How to celebrate – Have some corn of the cob today! Try grilling the corn instead of boiling it! Have a corn party!
