"Corn and More"

August 1, 2012


By Jackie Overom

As summer heat rises and we begin to harvest the vegetables we have nurtured, our favorite recipes will be enjoyed once again. Fresh produce is truly a summer delight. We would love to share a few of our favorite recipes with you.

We are a fifth generation farm and our first recipe is a special family treat. When our corn comes off the field we eat fresh corn to our hearts desire, but we also recommend freezing corn for year round enjoyment.


“Grandma Pahl’s Frozen Corn”

9 C fresh corn, removed from the cob
2 C cold water
1 Tbsp. salt
¼ C sugar
1 stick of butter (cut up and spread evenly over corn)

Place corn in a 9” x 13” pan.  Add 2 cups of cold water, spread evenly cut butter over corn, sprinkle salt and sugar.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Bag corn but let cool before sealing bags (approx. 1 ½ to 2 cups of corn with juices per bag).  Freeze.  Enjoy all year round!

 

On a hot day wouldn’t you love to be as cool as a cucumber? Let’s make
“Cucumber Dip.”

½ cucumber
½ medium onion
2 small cloves of garlic minced
3 fresh green onions
1 pint sour cream
1 — 8 oz. package of cream cheese
A few snips of chives
Salt & Pepper to taste

Peel cucumber and finely chop. Mix sour cream and cream cheese until well blended. Combine all ingredients and stir well. Serve with crackers or chips.

 

Our third recipe is for you if a little heat is your preference.
“Stuffed Poblano Peppers”
Serves 8 from Celia Scheel

4 Poblano peppers
1 small onion chopped
½ C chopped green pepper
½ C chopped sweet red pepper
1 C corn
1tsp. fresh thyme
1 tsp fresh basil, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
2 C shredded Mexican cheese
¼ tsp dried red chile pepper
Salt & Pepper to taste

Cut poblano peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Saut© the rest of the ingredients (except the cheese) for 10 minutes or until crisp tender. Divide the filling between the 8 poblano halves. Place on medium hot grill for 5 minutes. Top with the shredded cheese and heat until it melts.

We hope you enjoy the recipes we share. Please visit us here in the market and gather the best produce around!
