Brentlinger Sweet Corn is Here: Let’s Roast it!

Oh, happy days! We’ve got local non-GMO sweet corn streaming in from our good friend Ray Brentlinger, located in New Carlisle, Ohio. We barely have to whisper the name “Brentlinger” and mouths start to water. Sure we look forward to Brentlinger’s famed sweet corn every summer, but this year—watch out. We got us a corn roaster, and we’ll be debuting it this Saturday, July 14, at DLM Springboro, with it traveling to the other stores in the weeks to come!

Along with our cookouts, we plan on tantalizing everyone with hot, fresh roasted corn on the cob! After roasting the sweet corn, choose to have it served two ways. The Classic, with butter and salt, or Elote, also known as Mexican street corn, featuring roasted corn coated with cotija cheese, lime, chile powder, salt, cilantro, and a little mayo. It’s salty, cheesy, messy, and just darn delicious!

Look for us roasting Brentlinger Sweet Corn during the following dates:

11 a.m.–6 p.m.
July 14 • DLM Springboro
July 21 • DLM Oakwood
July 28 • DLM Washington Square

Lobstermania

The Makings of a Lobster Party

Thousands of fresh lobsters make their way to DLM for Lobstermania each year the Saturday before Memorial Day, May 26! Friends make plans to queue up in line before the sale officially starts, and what could be just another line is a ritual of its own. The energy is one to behold as folks eagerly await the makings of the most delicious feast, which will inevitably set the stage for the good times to continue throughout the weekend.

Sure there’s the fact that we think the world of our lobstering friends at Ready Seafood who come all the way from Maine for Lobstermania every year, an annual tradition at DLM now for more than 40 years and counting. Their mission is to share their love of fresh, succulent lobster and spread the word about sustainably caught lobster and why the practices of each fishery is important.

But truth be told, the DLM community has made this tradition one that sticks as we hear countless stories of friends and neighbors making a party out of their lobster feast. Family members trek from near and far to all be together with lobster at the table. It’s become apparent that this treasure from the sea is meant to be shared. Lobstermania sale starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 26, and once they’re gone, they’re gone!

The Tale of These Lobsters

The Ready brothers fell in love with lobstering at a young age and the local lobstermen were their heroes. They took their childhood obsession and grew it into a thriving business! They’re passionate about educating people on how hard-working lobstermen work toward a common goal of making it a sustainable industry. We’re lucky to have our lobstering friends from Ready Seafood visit us every year during Lobstermania!
