Subject: Corny recipes for the summer

Hello BFM fans,

Pati Jinich, Mark Bittman
and Becky Krystal are all into corn this week. Is it peak corn season? We are
lucky that Garner’s Produce always plants a late field of corn so we (usually) have great corn into October.
As Becky Krystal says: we will give you an earful of
fresh corn recipes this week

Peaches, raspberry
and white wine ‘sangria’ a twist on the classic recipe great to make ahead of
summer parties. The recipe can be found here.
