Sweet corn is a popular crop for home gardeners in Georgia.
Corn can be eaten right of the cob or used in many different dishes. The corn's crunch and sweet taste make it one of America's all-time favorite vegetable. No matter how you prepare your corn, it's low in fat, very low in sodium, cholesterol free and a good source of vitamin C.
Some dishes that include this wonderful vegetable are corn on the cob, creamed corn, corn soup, succotash, corn chowder, corn souffle, grits and all the meals we make from corn meal and hominy.
Sweet corn is a warm-weather crop, well suited for Georgia's climate. Georgia corn is available from May through mid-September.
