Looks delicious right?

Corn is a heavily sprayed crop so organic is the only way to go. And if you can find non GMO corn, buy it. It’s getting harder and harder though…sigh.

I use my knife to shave the corn right off the cob and into a bowl. The bowl keeps the corn from spilling all over the counter.

We liven and health up our corn by adding asparagus, red onion, chives and red bell peppers…

I use non toxic, non stick ceramic pots and pans for a lot of my cooking. The white surface you see is ceramic. NOTHING sticks to it:) and it is chemical free and lighter than cast iron. The only downside to ceramic cookware is that it doesn’t brown well so I use cast iron for that:)

The Recipe: Corn Off The Cob With Asparagus

Serves 6

4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 small red bell pepper, diced
Kernels cut from 5 ears yellow or white corn (4 cups)
one bunch asparagus, cut into 2″ pieces
Maldon’s Flaked sea salt (my favorite salt) to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons  minced fresh chives

Heat 2 T butter over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Stir in the bell pepper and sauté for 2 more minutes.

Add corn, asparagus, salt, and pepper and 2 T butter, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes, until the corn just loses its starchiness. Season to taste with salt and pepper, gently stir in chives.
