    Thanks, Jan! Now I won’t be so reluctant to buy unshucked corn. Now I’m headed over to your mango page.

    My great-grandmother said cornhusks made the best mops. She also made her own brooms from the broom straw they cut in the fields.

    A friend sent me this last week. She was skeptical, but tried it, and said it worked beautifully, as advertised!
