|The Comfort Family Farm Stand on Lumber Lane,|
As much as I love sweet corn and as much as I’ll eat of it between now and the first frost, I am no fan of corn on the cob. I find it inelegant to eat, to say the very least. Better by far is to take it off the cob. Combine with it some red pepper, red onion and butter and you end up with Ina Garten’s fantastic confetti corn which is the first thing I make when the first fresh corn hits the farm stand. (See http://www.chewingthefat.us.com/2014/09/ina-gartens-ode-to-marcella-hazan.html . This year, at the Comfort Family farm stand down the hill from us, not only was there glorious early corn but sitting next to it were quarts of snap peas. I brought them both home and breathed new life into Ina’s Confetti corn recipe. And the biggest change was it was just as good cold as it was warm.
