It's National Corn on the Cob Day!!

Well again, this one is a little early for us here in Central New York.

But today, according to the National Day Calendar website, is National Corn on the Cob Day.

Some warmer areas of the country already are enjoying corn this year, but here, we have to wait until a bit after the Fourth of July for our sweet corn.

Here is what the National Day Calendar website says about the day:

"June 11 of each year is the day to celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day. Fresh corn on the cob is a summertime treat that people from all corners of the United States look forward to as we start the picnic season.

Corn on the cob is also known in different regions as 'pole corn,' 'cornstick,' 'sweet pole,' 'butter pop' and 'long maize.' It is a sweet corn that is picked when the kernels are still tender.

Boiling, steaming, roasting or grilling are the most common ways of preparing corn on the cob. Celebrate by using @CornOnTheCob on social media."
