Corn 101

I've learned so much in the past four years since we started growing sweet corn.
My wealth of knowledge is so large, I thought I should share it with you - HA!

So in honor of our last two weeks of Sweet Corn 2012 I will share some little-known facts with you.

For instance, did you know you can have a deeeeee-lish-us snack in 2 minutes?

Take a beautiful ear of corn, still in the husk...

gently peel back the husk and add a smidge of butter (hey, smidge is a relative term). Mr. Greenthumb's corn is so sweet I don't use butter or salt, but many people prefer it so for the majority...
lay the husk back in place...
put into the microwave for 2 minutes...
the husk slides right off and you've got a snack! Be careful though, it's VERY HOT!
Do try this at home! It's awesome!
You're welcome :)

Wish you could hook a girl up with that yummy goodness! Corn crop here is struggling...farmers don't irrigate and no rain since May.

Hugs,
Robin

Hi Connie, just put a post on my blog about your Nikon fundraiser. I left another comment under the last post about the give-away but failed to leave my email address - just in case I win : )
