As a native Iowan and an honest person, I am forced to admit that New Jersey sweet corn in August is as good as the Iowa crop. (And, sadly, this year, I shall miss most of it.)

I'm from Iowa and fully agree with Charles on NJ corn.

Perhaps the goodness of the NJ corn is due to its proximity to the Delmarva Peninsula.   ;D

Two ears of fresh Eastern Shore corn, 1 hush puppy, 5-6 clam strips, one drum stick, and 13-15 steamed crabs is the best!

It is such a joy to know that someone here agrees with me on something!  ;D ;D

Pr. Austin,
I suspect you would be easy to like in person.

I respond:
Nope. Although cats, people who like food and two well-known supermodels think I'm terrific.

Oh, my favorite is SOUTHERN country ham - salt and more salt and little extra salt...

  Twelve hours of butt roast in my wood-pit BBQ, smoked over hickory.  Ahhh ...

I'm with Bri... er, PersonSelf on this. 

And ... everything's better with bacon (should be a new marketing campaign).

Congrats (again) Lou.

Wow, gotta read EVERYTHING on ALPB to catch up with the latest news. Congratulations, REV. Lou, and God bless you in your new call.

As to the ham and red-eye gravy, I remember watching, in horror, as my mother SALTED her ham before actually tasting it. :P She made a raisin sauce - is that similar to red-eye gravy or is that a whole different species?

I have no idea what goes on in red-eye gravy.  I was too busy rinsing my slice of ham while mom was salting hers.   :o
I do know I hate turkey stuffing with raisins, oysters, sausage or any other foreign objects stuffed into it.

When I was a boy my father used to smoke our hams with a brown sugar cure. Sounds like you would have much happier if your mom had done the same.

I bought a ham in a "Virginia" ham store while in Norfolk. It was interesting to learn that the source of the ham was Iowa.

Congratulations , Lou!

No one can do pork better than the Danish ELCA Iowegians.  Henningsens in Atlantic comes to mind. :)

Congratulations Lou on your ordination. I am glad you finally heard God's calling and made it official. I hope to be able to congratulate you in person at the convocation.

Corn and tomatoes are two of the types of produce where freshness makes an absolute difference and, therefore, fresh corn from some commie state like NJ or Maryland is preferable to older corn from God's country like Iowa or Illinois.


And congrats and condolences to the forum's newest padre.
