Sweet corn is a staple of summertime food – it’s often part of a BBQ or picnic.

Corn is a vegetable, fruit and a grain. Corn is a starchy vegetable
similar to potatoes, but its kernels are considered grains and can
be milled into flour. But corn is also a fruit because it comes from
the seed or flower of the plant similar to tomatoes. And like many fruits, due to its sugar content, corn can be turned into a syrup.
