POTATOES

  • Buy potatoes in paper bags, they keep much better and no light can get in.
  • Only buy small amounts in plastic bags, plastic sweats and is transparent.
  • Do not refrigerate potatoes.


CORN
  • Corn is a grain and not a vegetable.
  • An ear of corn averages 800 kernels in 16 rows.
  • Corn is a good source of fiber and Vitamin C.
  • Corn is rich in disease fighting antioxidants.
  • Corn flakes contain only 8% corn.
  • Buy locally and eat fresh, sugars in corn convert to starch after being picked which reduces its natural sweetness and compromises that great taste.
  • For the best cooked results, bring water to a boil then put your corn in for 8-10 minutes...mmm mmm good!
  • Bears love corn.
