In case you haven't heard, it's sweet corn season in this neck of the woods. That means a drive out to Bismarck Gardens. Last year we bought 26 ears. When buying sweet corn it's vital that you get some for eating now, and some for eating later.
So far we have had it on the cob with steak and on the cob with smoked grilled chicken. It's equally good with both.
I fully intend to make some esquites and whip up a batch of corn muffins real soon (I don't know what is wrong with me, it's hot as Hades here and I am just dying for a big bowl of chili).
It is also of primary importance to carefully put a big bag of fresh sweet corn away in the freezer to bring out for Thanksgiving dinner.
Right now we stand at 4 ears gone and 9 in the freezer. Next weekend when a new batch of calico has been harvested we will be back for 26 more ears. Last year after Thanksgiving there was no more fresh corn in the freezer. I will not make that mistake again.
