Inner Iowan

"Sweet Corn" season is by far my favorite food season of the year, if I can describe a season by what which food is harvested when. I just *heart* sweet corn....and we were able to find some pretty decent corn in our neck of the woods this year ("knee-high by the fourth of July" doesn't apply down here as corn season is already over-sniff, sniff)...however, it's just not the same as the good ol' fashioned Iowan variety.


I apologize for the not-so-great pics (not great lighting)...but I wanted to show my family that I haven't forgotten that the kiddos are half Iowan (as much as Randy drills into their heads that they're 100% Texan). ;-) To say that my children loved sweet corn would be an understatement...Laney couldn't get enough (this was her first time eating corn straight off the cob).

Mmmmmmm, I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!! Our corn season doesn't start till mid-August generally. We grow Northern SuperSweet in our garden. YUM. Our kids absolutely inhale it, too. I guess partly because it's a treat.

Corn is one thing I make very sure to package and freeze once it gets to the point where we just can't keep up with eating it all (or it's getting too frosty at night already!), but somehow it's still always tastier and more fun straight off the fresh cobs!

I wonder if the OK sweet corn that my FIL grows is as good as Iowan. Probably not! But it is still yummy. I love Josiah's face in that picture.
