    There is still a small amount of wild salmon harvested here but the stocks have been hit hard. My buddy does cod, crab and lobster. He gave us a bag of crab this year, we had a feed! We buy fresh and salt cod from him to keep us going through the winter.

    I just picked 2 dozen ears of "peaches and cream" sweet corn. Yellow and white kernels. My home town has a Sweetcorn festival, except when there's Covid. 🙁

    So far almost everybody has missed the point: Lee lives in south central Iowa within rock throwing distance of corn fields and gardens, many of which have growing therein the finest sweet corn known to mankind. When he says he loves sweet corn he knows about that which he speaks.

    Yes, but.......I doubt he eats it as an entree. Corn is a side dish. And, it aint Ice Cream.

    Excluding the 1.5-lane road passing in front of the house, I was raised in a house surrounded by fields. Depending on year (i.e. crop rotation) you could either see the neighbors or a wall of corn. When it was a wall of corn, somewhere in those fields was planted several rows of sweet corn which were either eaten off the cob, canned or sold. I don't recall corn being an entree......

    Au contraire! I have, on more than one occasion attended a "corn boil", whereat corn on the cob was boiled in large vats and then dipped in smaller vats of salted butter. The corn was not only the entree. It was in fact the complete meal including dessert.

    I'm just a few counties east of Lee, in Lee County, Iowa. We raise a bit of corn too.

    Nothing nearly so famous. Just a fairly typical corn belt get together at the peak of the harvest season. It might be at the fairgrounds, or the town square, or a church, or somebody's back yard. Often a corn boil was a fund raiser for the FFA or Scouts or the cheerleading squad.

    I actually remember one at Granville Hustead's general store in Colony, Missouri from the (gasp) 1950s.

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Co...!4d-91.9907307

    A strange but little known fact is that Granville Hustead who founded the general store at the now nearly defunct settlement of Colony, Missouri had a brother Ted who also founded a store 725 or so miles away - Wall Drug in South Dakota, on the way to Sturgis. And thus did the fame and fortune of the two brothers diverge.

    Growing up Catholic in MN, we couldn't eat meat on Fridays. Mom would often make fresh sweet corn from the garden as the entree. It was delicious! I still make a meal of just sweet corn.
