Cutting the corn

For corn lovers there are many ways to prepare corn besides just boiling it. Enhance the flavor by cutting the corn off the cob and you are ready to create a new dish or an old favorite.

Most of us love the crunch of fresh corn and sometimes without the bother of eating it from the cob. A favorite at picnics is corn on the cob along with all of the other finger food.

As winter approaches it is time pull the frozen garden veggies out and create something different and more of a comfort dish or a side dish to compliment your meal. Once you learn how to cut your corn off the cob, you will be ready to prepare your dish.

Be prepared for the splash of the juices from the plump kernels on your first try. After a few ears of corn it is fast going.

You might think, why use fresh corn? When summer comes along and the gardens are bounty heavy you might have a load of corn in the freezer and because fresh is better.

Fresh verses fresh frozen

When you have made this dish once you will see how easy it is to prepare. It is a nice side dish served with sliced tomatoes marinated in balsamic vinaigrette or your favorite dressing.

The corn used for this recipe is fresh corn and not frozen. Even though I have frozen fresh corn and made the same dish after letting my corn defrost before cutting off the cob.

      Thanks so much for your comment. A tip, if you have some left over, freeze it and add to a stew or soup later.
