& The Winner is...

September 8th, 2010 at 07:50 pm

CORN!

As weird as it sounds, our local grocer seems to do pretty well on the produce front. We get lots of high quality fruits and veggies at decent prices.

Thus, I haven't been overly impressed with our farmer's market finds.

Or maybe I just have no taste.

The grapes we got were maybe marginally better. Not enough to really notice.

BM oooohed and aaaaahed over the strawberries. Maybe those were extra good. The rest of us are not strawberry fans.

The green onions were not anything exceptional. Same for the cilantro and the pistachios.

I'd still go to support the local farmers and all that. Just not the huge increase in quality that most people expect from a farmers market.

But, today, I actually remembered the corn. I was going to bake the ears of corn, but in the interest of time, decided to boil them at the last minute.

Best corn we have ever eaten, by a mile!! YUM!

We are going to a BBQ this weekend, so we decided to offer to bring fresh corn from the farmers market. BBQ corn - even better!

    That's our experience too. Everything else bought at the farmer's market was good, but the corn was delirium inducing.

    Delirium inducing - yes! That is the term I was looking for. Big Grin

    We have had barbecued ourselves lately. For a really yummy salad, grill some corn, cut it off the cob and toss it in a bowl with a few cans of assorted drained beans (black and pinto is what we used), some diced fresh veges including broccoli, carrot and red bell pepper, some sliced olives and your favorite dressing (we use local Roy's club basil vinagrette) and at the last moment toss in some chopped avocado. Delicious!
