Final week, I informed you I used to be in full tomato mode. Which is true. However it’s not the entire story.
My different summer time love is recent candy corn, which I discover so irresistible that I drag house way over I can carry after I depart the market. I’ll most likely find yourself in bodily remedy, however I’ve to have my corn.
Tomatoes and corn are wonderful companions, and I make a whole lot of salads that incorporate each. However generally you simply need that corn — on the cob, in pancakes, in pasta, in soup and in all method of desserts. I’m infatuated with candy corn ice cream. I scramble corn kernels with eggs for a pleasingly monochromatic meal.
This week, I’ve picked 5 corn recipes for you. And to everybody who wrote in final week to inform me I forgot to incorporate BLTs within the publication: I promise, I didn’t neglect BLTs. I’d by no means. The BLT is the queen of sandwiches, and my sandwich of alternative. However generally you don’t have bacon at house, otherwise you don’t really feel like frying something, otherwise you don’t need (or eat) meat, or it’s too sizzling a day and also you simply need to slather the mayo on the bread, layer on the tomatoes and sprinkle all of it with a bathe of salt. At any charge, I gained’t make this error once more.
Now inform me how you’re feeling about corn, and the way you’re cooking it. I’m [email protected], and it’s good to listen to from you.
1. Grilled Hen With Tomatoes and Corn
You know the way you’re alleged to let meat relaxation for a number of minutes when it comes off the grill? (When you didn’t know that, now you do.) I often put it on a reducing board, however now I’ll let it sit on prime of a mattress of uncooked candy corn and sliced tomatoes, à la Ali Slagle, so the drippings from the meat can taste all the pieces else on the plate. Right here, the meat is chili-rubbed rooster thighs, juicy and scrumptious.

2. Savory Corn Fritters
I like corn truffles and fritters, particularly when the kernels are left intact (not puréed), which is what Vallery Lomas does right here. You could possibly serve these as a facet, however I’d eat them as a primary, perhaps topped with eggs and positively with bitter cream or plain yogurt. Watch the warmth on the range — too excessive, and your kernels will explode proper out of the pan.
3. Creamy Corn Pasta With Basil
It is a canonical New York Occasions Cooking recipe, and I can’t not share it with you right here, despite the fact that it requires a blender and I actually attempt to keep away from that for you on weeknights. It’s by Melissa Clark, and it’s beloved for a purpose.
