June 11th National Corn On The Cob Day

There is nothing like that first corn on the cob of the summer. Butter dripping off it onto the plate, salt shining in the sunlight, those little thingys that you stick in the end of the ears to hold the corn with while eating. Well summers here! It’s time to enjoy that ear of corn just like the first Native Mexican did around 9,000 BC. The idea of eating corn on the cob is to get the sweetest corn you can and that only comes from the freshest corn picked. The longer that it takes to get to you once it is picked the less sweet it will be. It also is a tradition, of sorts, for summer and with June here, so is summer!

How to celebrate – Make some corn today! Have a cook out, corn is great grilled. Have a corn husking party.
