Corn is King. And it's here, fresh from the fields, all throughout the valley.
A quick 5 minute boil and a roll in the butter, a lip smacking, finger licking, summer delight.
Let a stick of butter soften, real soft. Plop it into a bowl, toss in a clove of finely chopped/smashed garlic (I use a garlic press) and a couple tablespoons of finely chopped fresh herbs. What ever you like (our favorites this week are basil and parsley). Now smash and stir till it's blended friendly. Scoop it onto a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap, roll into a little log and place in the fridge till firm. And you're ready to roll.
Got corn? Today's ears are from KbMG, a summer's best. You'll also find fresh ears at Hartshorn's, Neill Farm, Gaylord's, and on Saturday's at the Waitsfield Farmers' Market. Have some, it won't be around for long.
What has ears but cannot hear?
