It's Fresh Corn Time Again

It's July and in the Midwest of the USA that means fresh ears of corn are being sold out of pickup trucks everywhere.  Well in a normal year that is true.  This year it depends on just where you live in the Midwest.  Here in southeast Minnesota, some corn in the fields haven't even hit knee high.  The old saying was corn needed to be knee high by the 4th of July.  For years in normal seasons, it has been well past that knee high mark.  However, there are people selling corn in much of the Midwest.  I got to enjoy some bi-color candy corn this past week.  Someone from Missouri was selling it in northern Iowa.  It was very good.

If you like fresh sweet corn, you can't waste this time of the year.  If it is already selling in your area enjoy the season.  If you are waiting in your area like we are, well just be ready when it hits.

Over the almost 2 1/2 years of my food blog I've posted a half dozen corn recipes and one video too.  Two on the cob recipes from the past are Fresh Corn on the Cob (V) and Grilled Corn on the Cob (V).  I also have posted a recipe in the past for freezing fresh corn.  Just click here Bathtub Corn (freezing corn for the winter) (V) and enjoy eating that fresh corn year round.  I also have a Tomato Corn Salsa (V) that is well worth trying.

My Spicy Cream Corn (V) recipe is great for those that like a little kick.
The Corn Pudding (V) is best when you use fresh sweet corn in the recipe too.

Then there is the video that you need to view and try because it does work even as crazy as it sounds.  Here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnBF6bv4Oe4

This week I'm adding two more fresh sweet corn recipes.  One is a "Fresh Corn Salad" and the other is for "Fresh Corn Soup" and you will enjoy both.

I hope you have fresh sweet corn selling around now or in the near future so you can enjoy the summer just a little bit more,  "Happy Cooking."
