Ask a Farmer: What is the difference between sweet corn and field corn?
Sweet corn. It's almost as American as apple pie.
If you're barbecuing with friends and family on a sunny weekend evening in Minnesota, there's a good chance that corn on the cob is part of the menu. Or maybe you're celebrating Thanksgiving with a plump turkey and all the fixings — mashed potatoes, dressing, cranberries, and a nice big serving bowl filled with sweet corn.
