Well, guess what? Not only is it sweet corn season once again (*Cough* you should totally buy my book *Cough*), but the book is featured in the August edition of Midwest Living! Check it ouuuuut!
Pretty slick, eh?
Figured I’d celebrate by sharing that same recipe with you all: Sweet Corn Bruschetta!
This recipe is simple, elegant, and easy to tinker with. It’s beautiful and delicious with the most simple of balsamic vinegars… but is *mind blowingly amazing* if you can get your hands on peach balsamic vinegar.
Sweet Corn Bruschetta
4 ears sweet corn, husks removed
Using a sharp knife, carefully cut kernels off the ears of corn. In a large bowl, combine corn kernels, honey, sugar, and balsamic vinegar, tossing to coat. Stir in basil, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cut baguette into 1/4-1/2″ thick slices – I like to cut them at a bit of an angle. Brush both sides of each bread slice with olive oil, arrange on a broiling pan.
Broil bread slices for 3 minutes, flip them all over, and broil for another 2 minutes. Remove from oven, spread each slice with some goat cheese, top with corn mixture. Serve immediately!
– Add in diced fresh tomato
– Try chili flakes, for a bit of a kick
– Try different fresh herbs – dill, tarragon, parsley, thyme, mint, cilantro…
– Add a pressed garlic clove
– Swap the goat cheese for mascarpone, ricotta, or cream cheese
