Minnesota fair food not just deep fried
FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. -- Jayden Johnson sat on a park bench eating one of his favorite Minnesota State Fair foods in 96-degree heat.
It was not something dipped in batter and deep-fat fried or even, on one of the hottest fair days ever, a cold milkshake. It was not his favorite fair food, which is a giant pickle.
The 10-year-old Apple Valley boy was burying his teeth in Minnesota-grown sweet corn picked the day before and just cooked in the Corn Roast booth.
