Everyday Mom's Meals: There's More Than Corn in Indiana.....

There's More Than Corn in Indiana.....

But we are really happy there is indeed a lot of it! Adam and Alex were at the farmer's market yesterday and one of the things they came home w/ was a dozen ears of fresh sweet corn. Since the 3 of us can usually only eat about half that amount in one meal, I froze the other ears for another meal. (If anyone is wondering, I actually froze them whole. Just blanche them for 6 minutes in boiling water, immediately immerse in ice cold water, let cool and dry. Then put in freezer bags.) After doing so I started thinking about ways to use them instead of just "corn on the cob". I remembered seeing Ina Garten do this recipe on her show, so I headed to foodnetwork.com to get the recipe. I think it will be a side dish to a beef roast I'm planning for supper next week.

Sauteed Fresh Corn
8-10 fresh ears of corn
3 TBS unsalted butter
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Cut kernels off of cob--this should make about 7 cups of kernels. Melt butter in a large pan. Add corn, salt and pepper. Saute uncovered on medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the starchiness in the corn is gone. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary.

*I am actually cutting the recipe in half for the 3 of us, and only using 4 ears of corn*
