Even though it’s available year round, I really love that first ear of corn in late spring or early summer, when it is at its peak.
Like tomatoes, corn is best when grown locally. Check out our local farm markets and farmer’s markets. Usually, the corn sold there has been picked that morning, unlike corn sold in the local super markets. Corn loses it freshness very quickly.
Corn is the number one field crop grown in the United States, in both value and volume of production.
