Yummm...corn, butter, salt. That about says it all, doesn't it? Being from Jersey, I was skeptical about the corn here (Jersey has the best corn and tomatoes ), but I must say it's goooood! We buy from a guy who sets up a little traveling stand on the corner of Lower Demunds and Ransom Rd. in Dallas.

LOL!!! Sounds like a dream come true. I wish I had grown up in a country environment, rather than a NYC suburb. I finally feel like I'm where I belong out here in NEPA
