|DIanne Cage:Fresh corn, jalapenos and the city school board|
Years ago I saw a cute cartoon in The New Yorker: A big corn field with two coons and one is whispering to the other. "Psssst, pass it on the CORN is ready." That is the way I feel!
My old friend SHERMAN SHAW called early one day last week and was heading to pick up the first load of sweet corn! I get so excited I can hardly stand it. Sherman gives me enough to share with family and a few close friends and then all we can stand. We have corn three times a day. It is so good! We boil it, fry it in a little butter, cream it. I love to eat it raw. Oink oink oink! Someone asked me why we spend all that time putting up corn. Come November, if they tasted my corn that we had spent hours cutting off the cob and freezing, it would answer the question!
My family knows that I love them very much when I serve them my sweet corn! One of their favorite Sunday dinners is my broiled lemon chicken with a thin gravy served over the rice, purple hull peas, barely steamed fresh okra with salt, pepper and butter, creamed fresh sweet corn, thick slices of fresh Better Boy tomatoes, homemade rolls with sweet butter and mayhaw jelly. For dessert, mint sherbet with lemon tea cakes.
