A sweet crop of golden sweetcorn has been harvested at the allotment and it’s pretty special. I also have some news!
It slips and slides down the hunks I made from the ears of corn. The ears were so big, I couldn’t find a pot to fit them in. That meant I hacked at them a bit to slot them into the large steaming basket. Not that we really minded.
The toddler gripped the hunks in his chubby fingers and pulled the niblets one by one then ate them like sweets. You will excuse his dirty hands. He was playing with some beetroot earlier. I need to soak him in a few!We ate ours like savages, butter running down our faces, pieces of sweetcorn stuck in our teeth, grinning at one another over our pot of gold.Wonderful, wonderful sweetcorn.
Glenisk have invited me to give a demonstration on Saturday 17th August next at their Pop-Up store at 51 Dawson Street in Dublin.
I’ll be demonstrating a few recipes and talking about how to feed your family well on a budget. The best part about this demonstration is that it is free to anybody who would like to attend. You’ll find more information about it here. If you’re interested in coming along, all you need to do is follow the instructions on the link to reserve yourself a place as they are limited. A little birdie has told me there may be some free goodies for attendees too.
Right, I’m off to dust off my passport for the trip across to the Southside of the Liffey!
