Corn on the Cob

1 Comment

This is a great time of year for corn on the cob. I had some of the best corn I’ve had in years from the new farmers’ market next to my building last weekend. It was sweet and tender. Even though it wasn’t a planned part of the meal (the farmer threw them in as a free sample) it was possibly the best part of the meal.

One medium ear of corn contains 2.5 grams of fibre, 5.7 mg of vitamin C, 225 mg of potassium, 3.5 grams of protein, and 99 calories.

Try corn in soups, in salsa with black beans, in vegetable pancakes,  or just straight off the cob.

  1. It must have been really fresh. My theory is that the water should be boiling while the corn is being harvested if you want the very best sweet corn!
