Calico Corn and My Kitchen Window

my kitchen windowsill on this late July afternoon...



the pottery is from my dear friend, julie whitmore http://juliewhitmorepottery.blogspot.com/

click on the picture for a closer look at julie's beautiful work.











i have really been enjoying this middle summer corn and decided to make my CALICO CORN...



you start by cutting the corn off the cob...







at the farmers market i got all different kinds of colored sweet peppers and some cilantro..






i got some flat leaf parsley out of my garden... diced the peppers and added them to the corn along with the herbs, a splash of good olive oil and a squirt of lime juice and some salt and pepper. this recipe is good served cold or sauteed in a skillet and served hot.

  1. Oh that corn sounds awesome! I love fresh corn. And your pictures are alway beautiful. I like the Mexican corn cut off the cob and mixed with mayonaise, lime juice and spices, too.

  14. Thanks for visiting on Monday for Flowers in the House - happy to have you. Spent a lovely time in San Luis Obispo years ago for a cousin's wedding - ate my first straight-off-the-trees-cherries and feel thoroughly in love! It was a lovely place then. Hope it still is! webb

  15. The pottery has a winsomeness to it - lovely.
    Calico corn - that's new to me, but it sounds like it would be a pretty side dish.

  19. Julie's pottery is to die for. You are lucky Kary to have so many lovely pieces. They fit so perfectly in your home. The calico corn sounds delicious. Lime juice on corns brightens up the whole recipe. Hope you and Teddy have a great rest of the week.

  20. The pottery is whimsical and delightful. With the late summer we are still waiting for corn on the cob but I did find it on my holidays in Ontario.

  21. There is a "fashion" in salad-making that I never quite liked: people think there has to be tinned corn in everything. Well, I think not. But fresh corn - now, that's a different story entirely! This dish sounds like something I'd really like.

  22. What a beautiful little vessel for a yummy garden fresh tomato.
    The recipe is a must try here soon... whenever I finish canning all these pickles...

    The corn recipe sounds lovely!
    I hope you dont mind but I just linked to your blog in my latest post where I mentioned your lovely Eggplant Parmigiana you posted about yesterday - i was so inspired I made a version yesterday but I didnt have any aubergines!I used your method with breadcrumbs and parmesan using courgettes, cooked fresh green beans and mushrooms instead,made a marinara sauce and it turned out pretty good too!

  31. Hi. I just read your lovely comment on Fern's blog. I'm sorry for the loss of your Buddy (we had a Buddy, too, whom I still miss 6 years later). So Glad Teddy is with you now. From looking around your blog, I'd say he made a pretty good choice when he picked you!!

  33. I wish Julie sold her pottery in London! Love the corn recipe and must admit to never having had raw corn, though I grew up in Vermont, where we lived on corn on the cob in the summer. Will try this recipe if I can get my hands on some lovely fresh ears :)
