Memorable food from this summer's fairs?

jbeaux | Aug 22, 2007 04:07 PM

I'm a huge summer fair and festivals person, but I hardly get to indulge my appetite. My husband regales me with stories of the corn-on-the cob machine he discovered at a fair in Minnesota when he was a child. For .10, you could watch your corn cob drop into a vat of butter and be served to you hot in a paper boat. Anyone else planning to go to a fair this summer (or autumn or winter), or willing to share food stories from fairs already attended (either recent or long past)?
