QUICK TIPS

  • Eat this first: sweet corn, lettuce, and cherry tomatoes
  • To store lettuce, place a paper towel flat in the bag with the greens to help balance moisture and prevent rotting.
  • Sweet corn can be enjoyed on the cob by boiling, steaming, or grilling. Try adding different herbs and spices to your butter for flavor. It's best to eat sweet corn right away for the best flavor and texture. Follow these instructions to freeze your corn
  • Paula Red apples were introduced in 1960 in Michigan. These apples are crisp and tart, ripening just before true McIntosh apples. They are great for fresh eating, and applesauces. The first taste of fall! (Via www.champlainorchards.com)
