Not a Corny Idea

Ask folks their favorite way to eat fresh corn, and you get a variety of answers. Boiled, grilled, smoked, creamed, pickled, and the list goes on. If you live in the South and depending on your planting schedule and rainfall, homegrown corn might be ready to pick and eat. My favorite variety is Peaches and Cream with large juicy kernels and sweetness like honey. Boil an ear fresh from the garden, add a little salt and butter, take one bite, and enjoy. Have an abundant crop of Peaches and Cream corn, and your friends double overnight. Everyone loves a generous giver.

Reminds me of 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” Could be a gift of time, money, or a dozen ears of Peaches and Cream corn this summer.

What’s your favorite way to eat fresh corn?
