AMAIZING!
Summer's best, one kernel at a time

by Heather Berry | hberry@ruralmissouri.coop

S

ummer offers many delicious garden delights, but one of the best will
have you grinning from ear to ear - corn. The staple can be used in
nearly any recipe, from salsa to relish and soup to pie.
Corn is a descendent of maize, a grain planted by the Aztecs 10,000
\HDUVDJR7RGD\ZHKDUYHVWWKHNHUQHOVQRWRQO\WRHDWEXWWRJULQGLQWRÁRXU
cook into syrups, add into cereals and more.
Years ago, corn on the cob was usually dropped into boiling water to be
enjoyed. Nowadays, the shucked ears can be microwaved in mere minutes,

To microwave ears of corn, husk and remove the silk from the ears, then
rinse. Next, wrap each ear of corn individually in waxed paper. Microwave on
high for 2 to 3 minutes per ear. Remove from microwave, carefully removing the
waxed paper, as it will hold in the steam. Serve while hot with butter, salt and
pepper. What a delicious way to enjoy one of summer's tastiest grains.

Bacon, Tomato
& Corn Pie

Nichols Career Center provides career and
technical education to students from 11 area
high schools in the Jefferson City region.

Summer Corn Chowder
2 tablespoons butter
4 scallions, white bulbs and green tops chopped but kept separate
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
3 large potatoes, diced in 1/2-inch pieces
4 cups fresh corn (about 8 large ears)
1 bay leaf
1 quart low-sodium chicken broth, divided
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
Sour cream, for serving (optional)
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the scallion bulbs, bell
pepper and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start
to soften, about 10 minutes. Stir in the potatoes, 2 cups of the corn, bay leaf,
broth and salt. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
In a blender, puree the remaining 2 cups corn with the milk. Stir the puree
into the soup along with the pepper and minced garlic. Simmer until the soup
thickens slightly, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaf. Stir in the scallion
greens. Top each serving with a dollop of sour cream, and serve while hot.

Bacon, Tomato & Corn Pie
10-inch store-bought pie crust
2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons pepper
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
4 to 6 slices bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
2 cups fresh corn
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place tomato slices on a paper towel and sprinkle with
salt; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, eggs,
lemon juice, basil and pepper. Sprinkle bottom of crust with 1/4 cup cheese. Arrange half of the tomatoes over the cheese, then sprinkle with half of the bacon, 1
cup of corn and a layer of tomatoes. Cover tomatoes with half of the mayonnaise
mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for 1 hour.
