    Jellyqueen's Note:

    I spent a few summers working in the corn fields de-tasseling corn in Illinois while in High School (many moons ago!) and learned a lot about how to pick and prepare this great inexpensive veggie. I came up with this easy recipe when my own kids got braces and couldn't eat corn on the cob. You will love this simple, and elegant side dish!

      Delicious and such an easy side dish! Made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup ~ 2014 and it was a hit with DH. I did cut the recipe in half and added a little diced poblano pepper for a mild zing and to use it up. Definately a keeper for this summer when corn is really on. Thank you for posting.

      I served this as a side dish for Chicken Scaloppine with Lemoncello Sauce (Recipe 250814) & it was a match made in heaven! Delicious!

      We loved this. I made it several times this summer when fresh corn was available, and I know we'll look forward to having it again next summer.
