I made up some yummy butters to spread on our
sweet corn for dinner last night.
Plain sweet butter ~ lightly salted.
Chili Cilantro ~ cumin, chili powder and cilantro
Lemon Dill ~ lemon infused olive oil, lemon juice and fresh dill.
I also tried a new-to-me way to shuck corn that I saw
on a video on facebook. (thank you Lauren!)
1. Microwave 4-5 ears with husks on for 10 minutes.
2. Cut the ear on the closed end.
3. Hold the open tip (I used a dishtowel since they were hot)
4. Shake and the ear will fall out completely clean of the silks.
Amazing! Where has this been my whole life?
All the silks are still inside....easy, no messy clean up, too.
One of the joys of summer just got a whole lot easier!
If you're local, the very best sweet corn farm is
Fairhaven Farm on Jasper Road.
It's drive thru! They have signs...you can't miss it!
