Bumpy – Corn

We are fortunate to live close to the Indiana border where some of the sweetest, crispest corn is grown.  We buy it directly from a local farm – a dozen at a time – and freeze any leftovers to put into soups and stews.

Corn on the Cob

I’ll never forget the first time I ate just-picked corn.  Our friend Barb’s parents grew fresh corn on their property.  We picked the corn, prepared it, and moments later it was piping hot on our plates.  No salt or butter was necessary because it tasted “a-maizing” on its own!

  1. I think it represents summertime, maybe a little more carefree time of the year?? Plus its seasonally sweet, delicious kernels are available for such a short time of the year – we must eat it while it is fresh! 🌽
