Kitchen Hint of the Day!

All about the Sweet Corn….

 
Sweet corn is at its best during the late summer months to early fall. An exception to that is in Florida where sweet corn is harvested from fall to spring. To receive the best flavor from sweet corn, it should be eaten as soon as possible after it is picked because the sugars will begin to convert to starches as soon as it has been picked.

Sweet Corn Ice Cream

Here’s one I had to pass along from the PBS website, Sweet Corn Ice Cream! I had not heard of this one until I read the article from PBS. I left the recipe below and a link to the recipe and article. Enjoy!

 

 

 

Sweet Corn Ice CreamPBS

This ice cream tastes exactly like sweetened corn. It’s smooth in texture, and the perfect way to use up the end-of-summer corn
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups whole milk
*1 to 2 corn on the cobs, husk removed, kernels cut off and cobs cut into 2-inch chunks
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup heavy cream

 
Directions
In a medium saucepan, pour in the whole milk, add the corn kernels, cob chunks and salt. Turn the flame to medium and heat the corn and milk mixture until hot to the touch, about 1 minute. Immediately turn off the heat and cover the pan. Allow the mixture to steep for 1 hour. At the 1-hour mark, remove the cobs and discard. Using a hand immersion blender, pulse the milk and corn kernels together until smooth. Alternatively, you could transfer the milk and corn kernel mixture to a blender and pulse until smooth. Place a sieve atop the saucepan and pour the mixture through, discarding the corn pulp (this is great to add to compost!).
To a bowl, prepare an ice bath by adding 10 or so ice cubes and adding a few splashes of water. Set a slightly smaller bowl inside the bigger bowl and set a sieve or strain inside the smaller bowl. Set the whole ice bath contraption aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture turns a pale yellow and looks very smooth, about 1 minute. Next you’re going to temper the egg yolks. Whisking the entire time, add about 1/4 cup of warm milk to the egg yolks. Add the remainder of the milk to the egg yolk mixture and whisk. Return the entire mixture back to the saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Cook the milk and yolk mixture, stirring constantly, until the thermometer reads 170 to 175 degrees F; the mixture should appear thick and coat the back of the spoon.
Pour the custard through the sieve into the bowl. Stir in the heavy cream. Keep mixing until the mixture is room temperature. Wrap the bowl in plastic and transfer it to the fridge for 4-5 hours, or overnight, until very cold.
Churn the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker, according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Serve immediately for soft serve or alternatively transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze overnight.

 
Tips/Techniques
The amount of corn you’ll need for this recipe will depend on how sweet and flavorful the corn you get from the market is. Give a kernel a taste, if it’s really milky and sweet, you should only need one corn on the cob for this recipe. If it’s mild in flavor, add one cob for good measure!
Yield: about 1.5 pints

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and …

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and 3 Bean Salad

 

 

 

Crock Pot Ribs 002

 

The temps weren’t too bad this morning when I ventured out to fetch the paper, above zero at least and little to no wind. But as the day went on it gradually got colder and it’s supposed to keep dropping, minus 10 by Tuesday morning! Everyone wanted Ribs for dinner so I cut the rack of ribs up and let them marinate overnight in the fridge. Dinner tonight, I prepared Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and 3 Bean Salad.

 

 

 

Crock Pot Ribs 001

Ready for the Crock Pot

I purchased the Ribs from Kroger the other day. They always have some of the best top quality Pork, too bad their Beef isn’t as good! Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then covered the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray. Got the Ribs out of the fridge and the bags, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low, for about 8 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, intoxicating! After 8 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For all of us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs are incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time.

 

 

 
For one side I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, just microwave for a total of 6 minutes and their ready. Then I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. A great replacement, and sometimes better, for fresh Corn on the Cob. Then I opened up a can of Read 3 Bean Salad. A delicious Sunday Dinner! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

 

 

 

 
Pork RibsPork back ribs
Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.
Several different types of ribs are available, depending on the section of rib cage from which they are cut. Variation in the thickness of the meat and bone, as well as levels of fat in each cut, can alter the flavor and texture of the prepared dish. The inner surface of the rib cage is covered by a layer of connective tissue (pleura) that is difficult to cook tender; it is usually removed before marinating or cooking.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Steak w/ Baked Potato and Corn on the CobWild Idea Buffalo Terres Major Steak 005

 

 
Went to the family Doc this morning and he was real pleased with the weight loss. So now I’m just waiting to get back the results on my blood-sugar test, hopefully that improved along with my cholesterol. For dinner I prepared a Buffalo Terres Major Steak w/ Baked Potato and Corn on the Cob.

 

 

The Wild Idea Buffalo Terres Major Steak has to be one the most tender and best tasting Steaks I’ve ever had! So tender and juicy, they prepare up perfect and this one was no exception. I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 4 minutes per side, a beautiful medium rare.

 

 

For sides I prepared a Baked Potato that I topped with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper along with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also boiled a Green Giant Mini ear of Sweet Corn. For dessert later bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
