Hot August Nights Sweet Corn

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

According to one of our most favorite NYT food writers, Martha Rose Shulman, August is the month to serve lots of fresh sweet creamy corn, and we certainly agree. Since the heat wave has finally broken in Colorado and a few other places around the country, we are including one of Martha's cold salad recipes and her recipe for hot creamed fresh corn, which tastes a bit like exquisite fresh polenta.
