Corn Fest 2010 – Try it & Buy It.
On August 18th, the Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market hosted Corn Fest. A huge thanks to McCleans Berry Farm & Fishers Farm who donated lots of great peaches & cream corn to be handed out to our fabulous market goers! We prepared corn in a few ways (boiled & roasted) & gave out lots of delicious samples to market-goers. There were several options for toppings –
The obvious choice of what goes with corn is BUTTER, but we thought why not spice it up a bit & some speciality butters.
Fresh Herbs (Rosemary, Thyme & Oregano & Gaelic Garlic
To make the following speciaty butters i simply mixed the fresh ingredients in with softened butter, blended (by hand) in a mixing bowl, and then placed them in a serving container & refirgerated over night.
Fresh Parmesan & Roasted Gaelic Garlic.
Ths was by far the most popular option! I made more part way through the market
Chili Powder & lime Juice
To roast CORN:
1) Soak in a water for 30 min (with husks on)
2) Remove a few layers of outer husk & place directly on the grill. 3) Continually turn & let grill for 12-15 minutes.
4) . Corn is ready when the outer husks have blackened & charred. 5) Remove corn from heat. Let cool for 5-10min.
6) Peel back husks.
