I love corn on the cob season. There is nothing like buying fresh corn from a local farmer, cooking it up and eating it with lots of butter and salt. I buy as much as I think we can eat in a couple of days, and we all gobble it up (except Little Dude - for some reason, he doesn't like corn on the cob. I really can't figure out how we ended up with a child who does not like corn on the cob!).
Anyway, with all that corn on the cob, naturally, I can't help myself but to look around for corn recipes. And I found this one for warm corn custard with berries from Deborah Madison's Local Flavors. This is a great cookbook with recipes for all the goodies you might be bringing home from your local farmers market....like corn (imagine that!).
The recipe is really just like making a homemade custard or pudding - cooking a sweet egg yolk and milk mixture slowly in a water bath. So, it's a pretty easy recipe. And the custard is not-so-sweet, which is really nice if that's your thing. I loved that it was a little corny - it reminded me of corn bread. DH commented that it was sweet and savory. The berries and whipped cream on the top are a must. I used blackberries, as recommended in the recipe, but I think blueberries would be perfect too.
Do you have any family members who just won't eat something that everyone else in the family can't get enough of?
