Corn! The Sunshine of Summer

Driving along M-72 west on the way to Empire, we passed numerous farm stands selling fruits and veggies including fresh corn. Naturally I had to stop and buy a dozen ears. ( I know, I know…it’s probably not organic and the stands are self-serve so there was no one to ask.) But I’ve been feasting on plain, corn on the cob with butter every night. It’s such a simple thing, corn on the cob with butter. I know it can be dressed up with herbs, seasonings, and it can be grilled rather than boiled, my default method of cooking corn cobs. But I like the naked taste of unadorned corn. And I don’t overcook it to a mushy texture. I still like there to be a light crunch. I even love it without the butter, although butter does seem to add a creamy, velvety dimension to it.

When I do start to get tired of eating plain old delicious corn, I will probably make a corn potato chowder, maybe some fried corn cakes, and if I still have some left, I’ll freeze it.

But here is a link to one of my favorite food websites, chow.com, with lots of great ideas for dressing up fresh corn.

Our produce department does have delicious sweet organic corn but unfortunately it’s not local. We hope that we will be able to purchase local, organic corn in the future.
