THIS IS FRESH CORN WEEK FRIENDS; an UNCOMPLICATED, VERSATILE and DELICIOUS SIDE with my HERB FLAVORED EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL!
Today, the star of the show is Corn on the Cob. It is as simple as cleaning the corn thoroughly, dumping it in salted water, boil it and then make whatever pleases your appetite that day.
Cooked corn could be smothered with a myriad of herbs butters, cheeses, or even with my favorite; olive oil and a dried rub. You can also remove the kernels and make salads or corn chowder. So, go get some fresh corn and make it happen today!
