My sis in law's dad gave us tons of fresh produce, including 50 ears of corn. Other than roasting, grilling,boiling and freezing, I can't think of what to do.



IN ADDITION, we now have the BIGGEST watermelon I've ever seen! What to do?

One of my favorite things to do with fresh corn is to cut the kernels of the ear and sauté it in olive oil it with diced red or green bell peppers (or both), onion and garlic. If I want a little heat I'll chop up all or part of a jalepeno to toss in as well. These ingredients freeze well so you can chop them up and freeze them raw so when you're ready to cook, you just need to put them in a hot pan with the oil.



My mom used to make a great corn bread casserole with Jiffy cornbread mix and fresh corn (not sure if you're vegan but if you are, I'm sure there's a way to adjust it.



For the watermelon...I love to grill it really quickly on a super hot grill and serve it with pickled onions and arugula and a little bit of balsamic vinegar sprinkled on top. If you're not vegan, goat cheese goes really well with watermelon and arugula.

What a great score!



You could make corn relish, that would keep for a while.

Creamed corn is good to use instead of sour cream in mexican dishes.

Chowder?



You could make sorbet with the melon.

Do you have my address?

danakscully64 06-24-2010 05:47 PM

I like to grill it and add it to salad. I just made this for the first time, it was SOOOO good. And you could use vegan sour cream and vegan cheese in place of the dairy:

Sadly, Jiffy contains lard, so it's not vegetarian Corn bread is awesome though.



Is this the recipe? http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Cor...Casserole-4178



Now I want to make some cornbread

HomeGurlCanCook 06-24-2010 06:27 PM

I haven't eaten anything "Jiffy related" since I was a kid but I had no idea that Jiffy contains lard...it's kinda scary if you think about it since Jiffy comes in powdered form!

I've never asked for the recipe from my mom but the one you posted seems like it would be the same except with fresh corn. Maybe I'll have to set myself to trying create a new version. I'll post here...assuming I'm successful!

I believe you can make ethanol and moonshine with all that corn.

danakscully64 06-24-2010 06:47 PM

I think that's why Jiffy is so cheap, it's made with a by-product. Yuck. There are a lot of other cornbread mixes on the market that are safe. I make mine at home using this recipe (I veganize it):

I am getting really into canning right now, so I think I would can some corn relish. The Blue book from Ball has a recipe for it, but I am not sure if you need a pressure canner or just a boiling water one.

watermelon and feta cheese is heaven, it used to be one of my favs, so if there is some kind of comparable substitute for the feta..which i don't beleive there is...well this was pointless..haha.

As a matter of fact, there is. I would never have thought of putting those two together. I used to eat feta on bread with cantaloupe so I bet it would be very good with watermelon. The sweetness with the tangy taste sounds delicious. Thanks!

danakscully64 06-25-2010 08:24 PM

So have you sent me the extra corn and melon yet?

Oh yay! They're such thing at faux feta? I guess it can somehow be recreated using tofu (i would imagine). It does have somewhat similar texture? But yeah, glad I could help, hopefully it's yummy.

Wish I could! I'll eat some in your honor today.

Well, I guess that's okay

janiejones 06-26-2010 08:26 PM

Corn casseroles are awesome, corn salsa, raw corn for salads, roasted corn....um, yeah I like corn

GingerFoxx 06-27-2010 07:27 AM

I have been using watermelon in smoothies a lot. You whiz it around in the blender for a few seconds and it more or less instantly turns to juice. A great refreshing summer beverage.

danakscully64 06-27-2010 08:02 AM

How about making Watermelon Slush?

sallyomally 06-27-2010 12:12 PM

Oh yeah! We used to make something similar to this, and it was so good. This will tie in perfectly with the meals I'm making for the omni family members who are coming next week. Thanks!

Tom 06-28-2010 05:54 PM

Sally, I don't know how ripe your corn is, but sometimes I've grown my own sweet corn and been a bit too late harvesting it. I have a hot air corn popper, and I've made parched sweet corn in it. I use corn that's quite over-ripe and is starting to dry a bit. I rub the kernels off the cob (they should be dry enough that they don't squirt juice all over) and pop it. They don't puff up very much or make loud popping noises- just soft pops. They puff up a little bit and when the pops slow down you've got a slightly crunchy, faintly sweet treat, a bit like corn puffs maybe.

sallyomally 06-29-2010 04:30 PM

WOW! I had no idea!I gave most of the dried up looking corn to the birds, but I still have some left. This would be fun to try. Thanks, Tom.
