  1. Yummy! I bet you didn’t know that Brentwood, California is the corn capital of the West. We even are famous for our Corn Festival. Yes, that is exciting compared to Haven! I bet you are having a blast, at least I can console myself with a new recipe and food. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

  2. I’m from Mexico and live in California and how corn on the cob is done at the farmer’s markets in Mexico is this way:

    Slather butter on corn, wrap thick aluminum foil per corn. Once grilled to perfection you unpeel foil and with a food brush you slather mayo on it, sprinkle dash of salt and cayenne pepper powder and last you squeeze lime on it…add corn stick on each end and ENJOY!
