Delicious locally-grown sweet corn is a sure sign August is here, and is a favorite time for farmers markets. There are many varieties of sweet corn available, and one you should try this summer is Mirai (pronounced Me-rye), which is Japanese, meaning 'Taste of the Future.' Beyond tender and abundantly sweet, this variety was originally discovered in Illinois. It's non-GMO, 95-day corn (rather than 75- to 80-day), which adds to the flavor, and will taste 'just picked' fresh even after 7-10 days in the fridge.
