If you like corn (and who doesn’t), you have a lot in common with our southern neighbors of 7,000 years ago!

Way back then, corn was first domesticated in Mexico. Muchas gracias!

Spring and summer brings us fresh corn that is delicious. But, lucky for us corn lovers, it is also available frozen and canned, so we can enjoy it year round.

When you buy fresh corn, refrigerate it ASAP. If you wish, husks and the “silk” can be removed, then put cobs in a plastic bag in the fridge or freezer. This makes it quick to heat serve.

Old What’s His Name loves corn and often grills it when he barbecues meat or chicken.

This makes him a real “corny” guy — but you knew that already.
