Lake Norman is more than just a lake.
Some of the people who live here still have farms.
Just down the street from our lake home, people lease farmland from another neighbor every year to grow the most awesome corn you have ever tasted. Juicy & sweet.
You know it's ready when their sign goes up by their garage: $3 a dozen.
The farmer's wife gave me a great recipe for when you just can't wait for dinner & have to try a single ear for yourself, as a snack:
Shuck the corn and roll it into a twist of wax paper. Microwave on high for one minute.
Butter it - or not. Enjoy!
