They say it's summer and now I believe it. There have been berries, bouts of poison oak and now this.
Corn on the cob. I get moist eyes just thinking about it, less so this one. Reminds me of being a kid, getting braces, and not being able to eat it off the cob. Waiting for corn season to arrive again has included a similar yearning.
For this simple pleasure, a simple recipe:
Take one teaspoon of chili flakes and another of salt. Crush together in your mortar and pestle. Set aside.
Take one pat of butter and mix with one clove of garden and a nibble of cilantro, Set aside.
Steam, boil, or grill your corn and then rub your ingredients on your corn until you've burned little fingers. Enjoy.
