Growing up I resisted eating my veggies just like any kid (and now the majority of my diet consists of veggies, go figure!) but my least favourite veggie was corn. My Mum would buy the frozen corn and serve it plain alongside a starch and meat and I hated the sweet flavour. One time when I was eating the corn I coughed and from then on declared that 'corn makes me cough' and refused the yellow kernels. It wasn't until after I got my braces off in High School that I tried my first corn on the cob slathered in butter & salt. It was love at first bite and now I can say proudly that 'corn makes me salivate'.
Besides butter (or in my case Earth Balance vegan spread) and sea salt, I also love local corn on the cob flavoured with lime, cayenne powder & cumin. There's a recipe in my Grilling Vegan Style BBQ cookbook that I'm looking forward to testing out next summer- spicy corn with black beans & zucchini!
Now that summer's officially over, I tend to gravitate towards autumn vegetables like butternut squash, rutabagas, turnip & potatoes. I save the corn for my home decor, like these beautiful ornamental Indian corn I picked up at my local farmer's market that I currently have displayed on my dining room table.
What's your food relationship with corn?
