Summer Fresh Eating

0 Flares 0 Flares ×
The best part of summertime meals is eating whatever is fresh for the picking.  We were blessed with another cutting of leaf lettuce from our little garden for a meal this week.

I also bought corn on the cob to boil and serve.  I picked up some from a local grocery store that was promoted as farm fresh, then I found my own direct from a farmer sitting across from his field one day.

The local farm corn was called ambrosia, with its yellow and white alternating kernels. When I shucked the corn, its kernels were the shiniest, despite some imperfections on the cob.  The store corn appeared dull and was tougher, yet more uniform in appearance.

I appreciated that the corn I bought along the road had very tender, juicy kernels.  The corn from the store was tougher.  But once it was cooked, spread with real butter and a sprinkle of salt, everyone in the family liked both varieties.  The reviews were mixed, and I preferred the ambrosia myself.  Yet the grocery store corn still tasted far better than anything from a can.
