There’s More than Corn in Indiana June 05 2015

While Indiana might be famous for the delicious corn produced there, the saying is correct.  There IS more than corn in Indiana. But to tell you the truth, I’ve never been able to visit the state without having at least one ear of corn.

I’ve been in Indiana this week spending time with my family at the lake. It is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of New York City, quite the opposite in fact. Our days include playing in the sand, swimming a bit and going for boat rides.  The highlight of my trip is always our visit to Sweet Corn Charlie’s.  This is the produce stand from the local farm which produces the best corn you’ve ever tasted.  I’ve seen my dad and grandmother argue about who got the freshest corn from Sweet Corn Charlie’s. It doesn’t really matter when you get the corn, it is always delicious! 

This year, I am even more excited about our visit to the produce stand because I am hoping to find something for the marketplace.  I never know where I am going to find the next food gem for Julie’s Beet and sometimes I find the treasures when I least expect it.  The best part is the adventure of looking and tasting.

Happy Friday,
