Tis the season

for the itsy-bitsy, dainty golden beauties.
  
"I have no hostility to nature, but a child's love to it. I expand and live in the warm day like corn and melons"- Emerson


The corn season arrives and I let out a sigh of relief. I wait eagerly for these months when I can go out to the store, smell the wet earth on fresh corn and obsess over which one, among the hundreds laid out, I should pick. I love corn- and I love all kinds of it. I am happy with just plain corn (sweet or otherwise) roasted on a stove.
I saw the recipe here- by the way Mark Bittman rocks!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons canola oil
3 ears corn, stripped of their kernels
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
1 tsp chilli powder, like ancho
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 small can (15oz) black beans
Juice of 2 limes
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Method

Put the oil in a pan and turn the heat to high. When the oil is very hot but not yet smoking, toss in the corn. Let it sit for a minute or so, then stir or shake the pan; brown the corn a bit, 5 minutes or less, then turn off the heat and stir in the onion, pepper, chile powder, salt, and pepper.

Cool for a few minutes, then toss with the remaining ingredients. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve hot, warm, or at room temperature

Judgement

I love corn in any form, if you have missed it the thousand times I have said it before!
