August 2014 Market Thymes Newsletter There's nothing better than sitting down to sweet summer corn on the cob, hot off the grill. Sweet corn is a real treat that's hard to top for flavor, freshness, and just plain delicious summer fun. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. You’ll find white, yellow, and bi-color sweet corn at the farmers’ markets right now and it will be available through most of October.
