Corn Food

For most Midwesterners, Summer can be boiled down to a buttered slab of corn on the cob, but there’s so much more you can do with a tasty pile of kernels. With Thanksgiving coming, and Harvest in the bag, it’s time for us to turn to a couple of recipes that will get you through winter. That’s right, Urban Plains producers are tackling corn-related food. We will break down two simple recipes in all of their corniness: corn salsa and corn cupcakes. (We are all about the sweet and savory here.) So, watch the videos, make your shopping list, then get ready for some corn-coated goodness. Enjoy!
