SWEET CORN! This variety is called "Who's been Kissed?" and it is so good. You will notice that many of the husks are open- We checked inside when harvesting to make sure no critters were in there and that the majority of the kernels were ripe. Organic corn is hard to grow- compared to conventional growing. It may not be the prettiest but it's clean, GMO/pesticide free, and oh so sweet.

Edamame- YUM! We've been eating it raw all day in the field. An easy way to eat it is to 

  1. Bring water and salt to a boil. Add edamame and cook for 5 minutes until edamame are tender and easily release from their pod.
  2. Drain thoroughly and toss generously with a coarse finishing salt like kosher salt. Serve warm or cold.

There are tons of more creative recipes out there but this is a simple, healthy snack to enjoy the full flavor of these lovely pods.
