Corn and Tomato Bread Pudding The proof of a delicious dinner is in this pudding, a classic baked custard dessert reinvented as a savory main course. Cut cubes from only firm, day-old (or older) bread, as fresh bread is too soft to soak up all the milk and eggs and hold its shape.
Grilled Corn on the Cob Add grilled corn to your list of summer vacation traditions. Everyone will gladly help husk, soak, and grill the corn in anticipation of its sweet, smoky flavor.
Southwestern Grilled Corn Remember to turn the foil-wrapped ears of corn as they grill to get corn that's evenly cooked.
Select fresh corn on the cob that has bright, healthy-looking, green husks. Look for well-filled-out ears when you peel back the husks and avoid those ears with lots of underdeveloped kernels. Use the fresh ears of corn as soon as possible or husk it, wrap in plastic, and store it in the refrigerator up to 2 days. (Certain super-sweet varieties retain their sweet flavor if stored a few extra days in the refrigerator.)
To freeze fresh, whole kernel corn, remove husks, scrub with a vegetable brush to remove the silks, rinse, and drain. Cover ears of corn with boiling water; return to boiling and boil 4 minutes. Cool quickly; drain. Use a sharp knife to cut kernels from cobs at 2/3 depth of the kernels; don't scrape. Fill freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Freeze up to 10 months.
Wanna know how to cut corn off the cob in a way that's not only easy but also makes clean up a breeze? Use a bundt pan. Start with shucked corn that's been blanched for a minute and place the tip of a cob in the tube of the bundt pan. Once it's secured, just cut down the sides of the corn with a chefs knife. Now, instead of kernels lying in every direction, like they would if you used a cutting board, all of the kernels will fall into the hollow part of your bundt pan so you can easily transfer your cut corn. Now, just look over your bundt pan and serve your corn with butter, salt, and pepper. With a simple trick up your sleeve, you'll be able to easily enjoy fresh corn off the cob.
