NATIONAL CORN ON THE COB DAY – June 11

 National Corn on the Cob Day - June 11

NATIONAL CORN ON THE COB DAY

June 11 of each year is the day to celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day.  Fresh corn on the cob is a summertime treat that people from all corners of the United States look forward to as we start the picnic season.

Corn on the cob is also known in different regions as “pole corn”, “cornstick”, “sweet pole”, “butter-pop”, or “long maize”.   It is a sweet corn that is picked when the kernels are still tender (in it’s milk stage).

Boiling, steaming, roasting or grilling are the most common ways of preparing corn on the cob.   If it is grilled or oven roasted, the corn is usually left in its husk during the cooking process.

Etiquette books state that it is proper to eat corn on the cob by using your fingers to hold the cob on each end.

CELEBRATE

Get the butter and the salt shaker ready, gather up some friends, start your grill and enjoy some corn on the cob!  Use #CornOnTheCobDay on social media.
