“This is a great tasting corn. "It's easier than canning corn". The original recipe is from Jan of J&R Farms, one of the original vendors at the Northside Farmers Market on Sundays in Madison, Wisconsin. And it is of the type I love = KISS METHOD. Especially for this old boy.. Eat well and enjoy this touch of summer in the dead of winter, cold, and snow.”
