Hello, everybody! The Fresh Pioneer is back and I've got a recipe most of you have seen before, and probably a few have tried. But I hadn't so I decided to see what all the fuss was about corn maque choux. We've got tons of fresh corn right now and it's DELICIOUS but the thing about growing your own corn is that it tends to get ripe in big batches.
I needed a few recipes to use up all this corn!
Dice half an onion
Roughly chop one bell pepper
Add 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 TB of sugar (really)
Whisk 1 egg into a 1/2 cup of whole milk
Add slowly to the hot pan, mixing as you go
Allow to cook thoroughly another 4-5 minutes.
August is my favorite season for the garden. Our seedless grapes are ready! We eat them out of hand, but they also dry really well so we can enjoy golden raisins all year (especially good in rice pudding or sweet breads).
And a random shot of the steak fries from last night. A friend mentioned French Fries and I couldn't stop thinking about them. I reallllllly don't like frying anything, especially when it's 90F, but a week later, I finally caved. So delicious, especially with seasoned salt and ketchup!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful week. Keep cooking and see you next time (or you can come visit me on my facebook pages here or here.).
