I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sunshine Sweet Corn. I received a gift card to purchase a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
One of my childhood memories was of shucking corn. We used to buy it by the paper bag full every time it came in season. It always made me feel like I was helping my mom out in the kitchen and it was an “important job” that my sister and I got to do together. I wanted my kids to have the same experience that I did, so I taught them the joys of shucking! Mason peeled each layer of husk one by one to revela the sweet corn underneath.
Since Jakobi is older by two years over Mason, he had the dexterity to grab the husk easier. I figure since he got his shucked sooner than Mason, he felt entitled to a bite. He is just like mom, always sampling the food.
I absolutely LOVE corn in the raw. It has such a sweet flavor. I am not surprised that my kids love it as much as I do.
My family loves falafels, and we make it all the time. My mom also used to make corn fritters for us when we are kids, so adding corn to the falafel mix just seemed right.
I also learned from my chiropractor a long time ago a trick to substitute butter on your corn. All you do is add cayenne pepper to mayonaise and spread on while hot! Yum!
Look how good those falafel fritters look!
The cayenne mayonaise tastes so good, you will eat at least two ears. I paired the corn together with the falafels and it was a huge hit for dinner.
W hat is totally awesome is this makes a hugely popular left over meal as well. Fresh corn is a family favorite and we love when the season hits our markets.
