|Corn Soup & Veggies|
Now, the time for harvesting the fresh corn is just about at an end. As a matter of fact, our neighbor's field is now almost completely mown over. We did find a few final ears sitting on our front porch this afternoon ~ what a nice surprise! Thank You!! :) It's been such a wonderful season for sweet corn & we've enjoyed eating them so many different ways. Here are few of the highlights...
|Fajita Steak Salad with Sweet Corn ~ The sweet corn was so tender, we just cooked it for a couple of minutes, cut if off the cob & sprinkled it over our salads.|
|I also made a ~ Corn Soup with Summer Vegetables ~ from the recipe in the book ~ American Grown. I simplified the recipe a bit; I didn't strain the corn after puréeing it & I used some homemade roasted ratatouille that I already had on hand for the summer veggie garnish.|
|The corn was so sweet & tender, sometimes we didn't even cook it before we added it to our salads.|
|We're all looking forward to next years crop of sweet corn. Sleep tight little corn field, you've earned your rest. You've had a marvelous first year!|
