Today’s Menu: Boiled Sweet Corn, Green Beans, and Cornbread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Real short on time today, some family issues to help take care of. 83 degrees, humid, and rain on and off most of the day. Went to Meijer for a few items. and back home, rain had started coming down pretty good. Started some laundry when I got a call from a family member that they needed help. I was gone most of the day helping with a few things. For Dinner tonight it’s Boiled Sweet Corn, Green Beans, and Cornbread.

 

 

I didn’t get home until after 6:00 this evening so Mom prepared Dinner tonight. I had called earlier and told Mom I wasn’t that hungry and just a light Dinner of Vegetables would do for me. She boiled the Sweet Corn I had bought yesterday and also prepared a pot of 1/2 Runner Green Beans that I also bought yesterday.

 

 

Throw in a Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread and Dinner is served! Everything was so delicious, Thank you Mom! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Corn
Sweet corn is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel.

Sweet corn also called sweetcorn, sugar corn and pole corn is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Since the process of maturation involves converting sugar to starch, sweet corn stores poorly and must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen, before the kernels become tough and starchy.

Sweet corn is eaten as a steamed vegetable, or on the cob, usually served with butter and salt. It can be found in Tex-Mex cooking in chili, tacos, and salads. When corn is mixed with lima beans it is called succotash. Sweet corn is one of the most popular vegetables in the United States. Fresh, canned and frozen sweet corn rank among the top ten vegetables in value and per capita consumption. Frozen cut corn is exceeded only by frozen potato products while frozen corn on the cob is 4th following peas.

 

 

 


Green Beans
Green beans are eaten around the world, and are sold fresh, canned, and frozen. They can be eaten raw or steamed, boiled, stir-fried, or baked. They are commonly cooked in other dishes such as soups, stews and casseroles. Green beans can also be pickled, much like cucumbers are.

A dish with green beans popular throughout the northern US, particularly at Thanksgiving, is green bean casserole, a dish of green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and French-fried onions. Some US restaurants serve green beans that are battered and fried, such as green bean tempura. Another popular dish, coo, consists solely of bean seeds that have been removed from their enclosing pods. Green beans are also sold dried, or fried with vegetables such as carrots, corn, and peas, as vegetable chips.

Buying store Corn on the Cob………………………

You want the corn husk to be bright green, wrapped tightly against the corn and slightly damp. These are the freshest cobs! Don’t choose any husks that are starting to yellow or feel dry. You’ll want to check the husk for small brown holes, which mean insects and should be avoided.
