Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sunshine Sweet Corn. I received a gift card to purchase a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
One of the great thing about spring is that fresh produce starts to show up in the stores! One of my families favorite vegetables for spring and summer is sweet corn. We enjoy corn because it is delicious and easy to make.
I have a garden and enjoy planting vegetables for the family to enjoy. I have tried to grow corn, but I’ve never had any success! So it is a good thing that it is so easy to find fresh corn in the grocery stores.
I always make one of the kids husk the corn, because I don’t like taking off all the corn silk. Since they enjoy eating corn they are always willing to help, and I like to include them in the cooking as much as possible.
Most of the time I just boil the corn and serve it as a side dish with dinner. But sometimes I want to make a dish that include corn as an integral part of the meal. There are lots of recipes on the Sunshine Sweet Corn Website, along with tips on growing and cooking corn and much more. I made this delicious recipes for Cajun Sweet Corn and Chicken based on a recipe on the website, and it was delicious! I like meals like this that are one dish complete dinners, because it makes serving dinner simple.
