When I was shopping for dinner groceries:
Fact 1: we hadn’t had any corn-on-the-cob yet this summer.
Fact 2: I read an article recently about how many more micro-nutrients are in plants of color than in highly bred low-color varieties.
Fact 3: I needed a starch for the menu, and we’ve had rice and potatoes many times recently.
Fact 4: no kidding—$6 for five ears. (I hear opportunity knocking for serious gardeners.)
And, my heavens, was that red maize tasty! All the way to the cob. (Red cob.)
And, yes, a splurge, but ya gotta do that once in a while—if you at all can—in some form or another….
