Fresh "RAW" Organic Corn on the Cob
3:37 PM 7/27/2009
When organic corn on the cob is so fresh, sweet and crisp, there’s only one way to eat it – raw.
Now calm down and let’s consider…
Hot buttery corn on the cob in definitely delicious, but raw is so oddly refreshing and different, an acquired taste that becomes so addictive, that one’s body leaps about for joy transmitting its elation to you – if you’re listening.
Raw food is the prerequisite native state of the body’s Bureau of Feasting Affairs.
However, as so many of us have become accustomed to seasoned, broiled, baked, boiled, steamed, roasted, charred and altered foods, we’ve lost touch to the ethereal fragrance, textures and pureness of raw.
The essence of raw vs. cooked?
One illustration, corn… as an adult, you will hate your first taste of raw corn. But had you been raised on it, you would have come to abhor and deplore the heating of something so inherently fresh off the "vine" sublime.
Last evening, I had the distinct pleasure of sinking my choppers into two, 99 cent organic ears of mouth watering, crisply sweet, raw corn.
(Admission of Guilt: Too lazy to cook…)
One was not enough, so greedy piglet that I am, snuck in number two. Could easily have gone for three… but demurred…
And what was the payoff besides delicious late snack convenience on the cob?
Waking up with skin glowing, light on my feet.
That’s the flagrance of raw. : )
Lazy Hazy Summery Raw Corn on the Cob
If you’re a bit lazy, want fash food, shuck an ear of organic corn, test it for sweetness, then rinse and eat raw right off the cob.
Raw Corn Cob Wheels
To acclimate a family, cut a chunky wheel off the cob and eat with gusto and lip smacking crunch. If your kids want to try, cut them a tiny wheel each. Make it fun!
Raw Corn Salad
Cut the kernels from several ears of corn and make a raw corn salad. Toss corn, red, green and yellow peppers, and tomatoes together with dash of unfiltered olive oil, natural salt, fresh ground pepper.
Fresh Raw Corn Gazpacho
Or throw together a cold fresh corn gazpacho with peppers, olive oil, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado. Top with marinated fresh mozzarella OR dollop of organic sour cream. (Do not DREAM of using non-organic sour cream) Sensorama sensational.
For hot summer days, cold dishes save on gas and electricity.
Summary of Raw
Try it – it might grow on you. Granted… hot corn with melted butter is a uniquely scrumptious treat. But high quality fresh picked raw corn on the cob is refreshing, light, strange, unique, cleansing and tonic.
And maybe you’ll wake up with skin glowing, light on YOUR feet. : )
