corn on the cob…

June 4, 2009

It’s isn’t too much longer that corn on the cob will be in full season around these parts.    in fact, i’ve already seen some decent prices on corn at my local market.
instead of using the same old boring butter, salt, and pepper with your corn.  why not try something new?
here’s a great recipe for corn on the cob with shallot-thyme butter.   the flavor combined with some fresh sweet corn will blow your socks off!!

    Oh, I love corn on the cob, too! I'm having trouble getting the links to work, though. It's probably just my computer, so I'll try back again later. I love your blog, by the way. 🙂
