corn_on_cobMillions of people love sweet corn on the cob. As summer nears, we can’t wait to bring out the salt and pepper, and boil, steam or grill some fresh, sweet, corn on the cob.

National Corn on the Cob Day encourages us to celebrate and enjoy this tasty summer time treat.

Corn is a very special food, falling into not just one food category, but two. The kernels you eat off the cob are classified as vegetables, but if you dry and pop those kernels into popcorn it is considered a grain. Corn is also a nutritional powerhouse, rich in antioxidants and fiber. If you’re looking for a yellow or white vegetable to add to your veggie rainbow, corn offers a lot of nutritional value.
