I bought corn from Ham Family Farms, blueberries from Blueberry Heritage Farm and these really ripe raspberries from a new vendor on Friday.

After cutting them off the cob, I combined the raw corn kernels, blueberries and raspberries. Raw corn is way sweeter, and the raspberry juice really brought the whole thing together.

Three people tried it and snuck extra spoonfuls when they thought I wasn't looking. :)
