This is interesting about a cob of corn............
 
 
Maize also known as corn, is a cereal grain first domesticated by indigenous peoples in southern Mexico[1][2] about 10,000 years ago. The leafy stalk of the plant produces separate pollen and ovuliferous inflorescences or ears, which are fruits, yielding kernels or seeds.
Maize has become a staple food in many parts of the world, with total production surpassing that of wheat or rice. However, not all of this maize is consumed directly by humans. Some of the maize production is used for corn ethanolanimal feed and other maize products, such as corn starch and corn syrup. The six major types of corn are dent cornflint cornpod cornpopcornflour corn, and sweet corn.

The first ears of corn were short, only a few inches long and originated in Mexico. Fast forward through centuries of breeding and we have the modern bigger, fuller ears of corn. On average, a modern ear of corn has 16 rows of kernels. Although the actual number of rows can vary, the number will always be even. The number of kernels on an ear can vary from 500 to 1,200. Genetics determine the number of ears that a single corn plant will grow.

National Jelly-Filled Doughnut DayJune 8 is National Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day. One of America's favorite treats deserves its own holiday.
Doughnuts a small fried rings of sweet and leavened dough. This treat originated in the Netherlands, where it was cooked first without a hole in the center. It's name was olykoek, that meant oily cake. Little pieces of sweet dough were deep fried in hot hog's fat.
 
The first mention of doughnuts dates back to 1809, when Washington Irving wrote in History of New York about fried little balls of sweet dough. At that time word “doughnut” didn't exist, and it appeared only in 1900 after the publishing of story Peck's Bad Boy And His Pa by George W. Peck.
The hole in the center of doughnuts appeared in 1847, when a 16-year-old Hanson Gregory used a top of a round tin paper container to punch the holes in dough. This made the dough to cook evenly, and ring-shaped donuts soon became popular.
Jelly-filled doughnut is without a hole in the center, otherwise it would be difficult to put filling inside. Jelly-filled doughnuts are not very simple to be cooked, because you have to place filling on the bottom half of the dough before you fry it in oil. So use your favorite jelly to make the best jelly-filled doughnuts to celebrate the holiday!
