This corn recipe post is sponsored by Mom Central Consulting for Sunshine Sweet Corn but all opinions expressed are my own.
I have been living in Georgia for 13 years now and there are certain aspects of ‘southern food’ that I have just not learned to enjoy. I detest okra and collard greens and whoever thought boiled peanuts would be tasty is in serious need of help. However, I have come to LOVE the fact that I am only hours away from Florida, which has some incredible produce available almost all year round. I am already finding fresh corn on the cob in the grocery store so when I got the chance to work with Mom Central Consulting to create a corn recipe using Sunshine Sweet corn I was thrilled!

Corn is one of those veggies that my kids absolutely love. They are good about eating most veggies…they will eat broccoli without cringing and barely even wrinkle their noses as asparagus any more. But corn they actually ask for MORE of. The last time I served corn my son looked at the pile I had placed on his plate, gave me a ‘are you serious?’ kindof look and then asked if I would please add another pile! So, needless to say, any corn recipe I serve is usually pretty well received.
I prefer using fresh corn whenever possible because in my opinion, there is nothing quite as sweet as fresh corn right off the cob. It is incredibly easy to remove from the cob, too, and just a few seconds with a sharp knife will give you plenty of it for just about any corn recipe you want to try. We often use it in corn fritters, fresh corn bread, and one of our favorites: corn chowder!
Sunshine Sweet Corn has some great information on their website about fresh corn. You can read about all the health benefits, learn how to grow it in your own back yard, and find some awesome recipes. Sunshine Sweet Corn is grown by a collective of family farmers in Palm Beach County, Florida. it is naturally bred for its sweet flavor and hits its peak season during April and May. In other words, you should be finding some deliciously sweet corn coming to your stores very soon!
