A-MAIZING-LY TASTY CORN
In September, the harvest moon will beam over the land, extending the farmer’s normal working day well into the night. This is therefore a time to reflect on the summer that has just past while also welcoming this year’s garden too.
It was Jonathan Swift who said that “Whoever makes two ears of corn to grow, where only one grew before, deserves better of mankind and does more essential service to his country than the whole race of politicians put together.” This is an especially apt sentiment for this particular political year. And, now, here is a special recipe to cook that corn.
- as many years as you want
- a kettle of water
- a tablespoon of sugar
- a teaspoon of butter
- salt and pepper to taste
Put the kettle of water on the stove and add the sugar. Wait until the water boils. Put the corn in the boiling water after you have husked and cleaned it. Cook, butter, salt and pepper the corn and then eat it corn as quickly as possible after cooking but do avoid overcooking.
