Fresh corn is such a treat, nothing beats the taste of corn just picked in the morning and on your plate later that day. I’m at the farm stand straight away when the first ears show up. As the summer progresses and tomatoes are added at the stand well then it’s time for the perfect combination of flavor: corn, tomato and basil salad. It really doesn’t get better when all three are available locally fresh from the farm!
From by the bay wishing you farm fresh food memories!
