Seasonal Spotlight: Sweet Corn

Why Eat Sweet Corn?

Sweet corn is a summer favorite. In-season from June through September in Solano County, they are a good source of fiber, B vitamins and minerals.

How to Prepare Them

Sweet corn can be eaten fresh off the cob or cut from the cob and incorporated into salads, soups and salsas. It can be roasted, boiled, broiled, steamed, grilled or microwaved.

Try sweet corn in this Vegan Corn Salad with Barley, Tomatoes & Basil Vinaigrette and find other seasonal recipes here.
