:: Basil and Sweetcorn! A TASTE EXPERIENCE

February 29, 2008 at 10:36 am 2 comments

I picked this recipe up while staying with my lovely Auntie Annie during our recent trip to Florida, and it’s a real discovery! The combination of Basil and sweetcorn works together to create a pretty a really interesting taste and a perfect side dish to grilled meat or chicken. The recipe itself is fairly straight forward but this one is definitely worth trying.

Basil and Sweetcorn

  1. A Good Handful of Fresh Basil
  2. 4 Corn on the Cob (Fresh if available)
  3. 1 Tablespoon of Butter
  4. A Good sprinkle of Salt and Pepper

In a large bowl, slice the the corn off the cob- if your using fresh, don’t bother straining any of the excess juice that comes out, it all adds to the flavour. Chop the Basil roughly and put to the side.

Place a sauce pan over a medium heat and add the butter until melted. Add the corn, toss, and then add the basil. Keep the mixture moving by stirring for about 3 Min’s.

Season with the Salt and Pepper and serve piping hot!

Let me know what you think!

    Hi Donal! Another great recipe–I tried this this past weekend with corn from our local farmstand and fresh basil from my garden. I never would have thought to put these two ingredients together, but YUM!

    If you want it even tastier, use bacon grease instead of butter. If you have some crumbled up bacon that makes it even better.
