Munson Farms Corn is candy on the cob

This is the sixth in a series of pieces profiling Colorado-grown products...and what some local restaurants do with them. Is there an ingredient that makes Colorado chefs salivate quite so much as Munson Farms corn? They simmer it into chowders. They bake it into biscuits. They sprinkle kernels, raw, over fresh salads. Given the chance, they might very well bathe in the liquid left after the corn is cooked.
