Did you know corn is both a vegetable and a grain? Sweet corn (the kind we eat on the cob) is considered a vegetable and harvested at the end of summer while the kernels are still plump and sweet. Other varieties of corn are harvested in the fall when the kernels are dry. This kind of corn is then ground into flour, which can be used to make cornbread or tortillas.

Look for sweet potatoes that are firm, have smooth skins and are free of soft spots. Store whole unpeeled sweet potatoes in a cool, dry place for up to about a week, but don’t refrigerate them as they tend to dry out.
