Ahhhhh, fresh corn-on-the-cob. I love it. The season is winding down here, so I grabbed a few more ears and made this wonderful Coyote sweet corn dish. The corn is the star of the show, but there are a lot of other great flavors to be found too!
I was amazed on how much of a difference sun-dried tomatoes can make to a corn dish, and just as amazed about the bread and butter pickles. I’d never thought of adding either to something like this, and boy, was I surprised. It’s a combination of richness and a little spiciness, just like I love.
This is really a fantastic side dish. It looks great, smells great, and tastes beyond great. This fall and winter, when fresh corn is nowhere to be found, I’ll make it using canned corn kernels. It won’t be quite the same but it’ll remind me of summer and that great fresh corn flavor.
