Virtual CSA Box: Sweet Corn

Pin it button
The corn is high in the fields, and driving through the country is like driving through a screen of green stalks and golden tassels. Weekly CSA boxes all have sweet corn - check out Boston Organics, for instance.

What do you do with all this sweet corn? We like to keep it simple - eat it off the cob (with toothpicks to follow) or quickly sauté the kernels, like in this Herbed Corn with Lime Butter recipe. More ideas below...We ate a chopped salad last weekend with corn, cucumber, herbs, and leftover grilled steak that was pretty sublime. You can still grill it, of course, like in this Grilled Corn with Spicy Chili Butter from Leite's Culinaria. We were also struck by this rather fancier recipe, also at Leite's: Sweet Corn Madeleines with Caviar and Crème Fraîche. Wow. We also like this Corn Salad in Radicchio Cups.

What are you doing with the sweet corn in your box, or from the stand on the corner?
