Minnesotans are fanatical about their corn. When I was working part time in one of our Byerly’s produce departments, the number one question during the month of June was, “When will you get local sweet corn?” Minnesotans crave it! I think this is because it is the quintessential fresh summer produce item.
We have all officially brushed off the cold of winter, eaten more spring berries than we can handle, and want to plunge into the heart of summer with some wholesome, local, sweet corn on the cob.
