Daily Diversion #216 (and a Bonus Recipe): Summer Corn

Food is magic, so it’s no wonder that I feel deeply, divinely alive and loved when The Chef cooks for me. His most recent culinary offering started like this:

Corn on the cob

Corn on the cob is beautiful in and of itself, but my husband, The Chef,  decided to transform it into something even better! See below for details.

CHEF LEIGHTON’S GRILLED CORNFUSION

INGREDIENTS:

  • 5 OR 6 EARS OF CORN ON THE COB
  • 1/2 OF A FRESH PINEAPPLE
  • HABANERO SUGAR
  • 6-8 THIN PATS OF BUTTER
  • SRIRACHA SALT, TO TASTE
  • DRIED CHILIES, TO TASTE

DIRECTIONS:

  1. GRILL THE EARS OF CORN USING YOUR PREFERRED METHOD. SLICE OFF THE KERNELS AND PLACE IN A MEDIUM BOWL.
  2. CUT THE PINEAPPLE INTO LARGE SLICES; RUB ONE SIDE OF EACH SLICE WITH A THIN LAYER OF HABANERO SUGAR. GRILL BOTH SIDES UNTIL SLIGHTLY BROWN. YOU CAN GRILL THE CORN AND THE PINEAPPLE AT THE SAME TIME. DICE THE PINEAPPLE AND ADD TO THE BOWL WITH THE CORN. STIR.
  3. ADD PATS OF BUTTER AND STIR WELL. ADD THE SALT AND CHILIES, TO TASTE, INCORPORATING FULLY.
  4. SERVE!
Corn

Grilled Cornfusion!

It is slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and 100% marvelous! Kind of like a certain special someone I know…
