It’s summer and that means cook outs and corn on the cob! Generally corn on the cob comes from sweet corn which was first discovered, or created, in Mexico around 9,000 BC. Corn on the Cob is good for you, fun to eat and easy to make. It can be boiled, steamed or grilled and lathered in butter with salt (Both making it less healthy) is hard to beat for a summer treat. I grew up on a farm and we grew corn. Summer was always marked when we served up corn on the cob. Naturally we had to husk in and clean it but no one seemed to mind knowing we would soon be eating it and enjoying every bite.
How to celebrate – Have some corn on the cob. Go pick your own corn from a field. Try roasting corn over an open fire.
