“Knee high by 4th of July.” That’s how tall my good friend Donny at Berberian Farms told me farmers say corn stalks planted in spring should be by early July. But with all the warm weather we’ve had this year, corn stalks are much taller than they should be. That means locally grown early season corn, like the “salt & pepper” corn shown below, is ready for harvest right now.
And, wow, the corn tastes great: sweet and creamy with a crisp pop when you bite into it! Of course, it’s even better if you have the good fortune to get the corn fresh from a farm stand and eat it the same day it was picked.
For the quickest and easiest way to cook 1-4 ears of corn with no sacrifice in flavor, texture or nutrition, just click either picture on this page for a free microwave oven cooked corn on the cob step-by-step picture book recipe. Dig it & dig in!
