It's sweet corn season! Are you tired of the bland flavorless sweet corn at the grocery store? Come and see Alex & Agnes! Bi-color corn is ready and is so sweet and delicious!

I remember as a kid going out in the morning to pick corn before the heat of the day. We would shuck the corn and mom would cook up a big pot of it on the stove. We would eat sweet corn for lunch! My friends thought that was unusual, but I thought it was great!

One of my new favorite ways of eating corn is in a salad. Not a leafy green salad, but where corn is the star! You can roast it, or steam it but make sure to keep it a little crisp-tender. Toss with whatever your favorite in season local veggies you have on hand. My favorites are red onions, tomatoes and cucumbers with fresh dill, parsley and basil. A little salt and pepper and you are good to go! No dressing is needed and that is always a good thing!

Please share with us YOUR favorite corn recipes! We'd love to hear from you!


  1. I love corn salsa! You can make it using all or any combination of the following ingredients: I use 2 ears of Nemeth sweet corn cooked kernels, 1 large diced tomato, or several diced small tomatoes, 1 diced green &/or red pepper, diced onions &/or green onions, minced hot peppers (if you like it spicy), black beans, avocado, 1 tbsp lime juice, about 1/4 cup olive oil, fresh chopped cilantro and salt and pepper to taste. You can roast the corn & experiment with all of the ingredients to find your own favorite corn salsa recipe.

  2. I think I'll be making that this week! Thanks Jessica!
