One of the things I like best about living in the Midwest is all of the fresh produce available here in the summer. When I drive between towns I pass fields of corn, alfalfa, soy beans, horseradish, tomatoes, watermelon, etc. There are many roadside farm stands that sell freshly picked locally grown produce – everything from corn to berries and peaches. Sweet corn is one of my absolute favorites. Since I grew up eating this freshly picked, I do not care for frozen or canned corn. Today I stopped and picked up half a dozen (but they gave me 7) ears of fresh sweet white corn, onion, portabella mushroom cap, and a quart of blackberries. We will have hamburger with grilled onions and mushrooms for dinner with sweet corn and salad, followed by blackberry cobbler for dessert tonight. I am going to make a smaller version of this Blackberry Cobbler (minus the nectarines). I made it last summer and it was very good. It goes very well with vanilla ice cream. Mmmmm…I cannot wait. I get hungry just thinking about it!
