There Can Never Be Too Much Corn!

We have corn lovers in our house.

I think it might be a combined case of genetics and environment.  The Doris Family has eaten A LOT of sweet corn over the years here at Dorisdale.  Now, I must make a confession.  According to Peter I didn't know what good corn was pre-Doris.  For me, the riper and starchier the better...and I even remember a few times snacking on cow corn because we just couldn't wait any longer for our first feed!

Our kids are definitely following in the family tradition - they can't get enough!  They're happy to eat a few cobs of corn twice a day...and have even been caught sampling a cob or 2 at breakfast with Peter.  They're following Grandma Bernadette's saying, "You can't sell something you haven't eaten!".

The kids have been doing sales today.  That has left me (with assorted help between customers) for other corn projects.  We have jars of Corn Zucchini Relish cooling, bags of Aunt Sara's Freezer Corn freezing for a winter treat (see below), Corn Bread ready to eat (baked by Maggie)  and even a big pot of Mexican Rice with Corn (and some extra zucchini) simmering for dinner.  And Liam is snacking on crackers with Corn Relish as I type!  Claire googled a Corn and Feta Salad she wants to make tomorrow.

I still have a few dozen corn on the kitchen counter waiting to be made into something else.  Maybe some plain blanched corn for black bean salad?

If you have a favourite recipe, send it our way!  Post it here or on our Facebook page - search Dorisdale Farm or click on

Aunt Sara's Freezer Corn (thinking of her today!)

Bring to boil in pot and let simmer for 2 minutes.  Cool and bag into preferred servings sizes to enjoy!
