The last days of Summer are upon us. School has started again and Fall is just around the corner. It’s been a hot one here in Tennessee. So, these last few days of cooler weather are a blessing. I don’t think I could have picked better weather for this Labor Day weekend.
Still, the signs of Fall are slowly creeping in. This morning there was just a hint of smoke in the air from a nearby tobacco barn. And, this afternoon a friend and I listened to the breeze rustling through a field of dried corn stalks while enjoying ice cream in the shade of a nearby tree. It won’t be too many more weeks before the mornings start with that crisp air and the first hints of frost. I have to say that while this summer has been hot, it sure beats the gloomy days of the past Winter. But, Fall is still my favorite time of year and will welcome it this year.
Have a blessed day!
2 cups fresh corn (cut from cob)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon bacon drippings
1/2 cup water
Take a small bowl and place it upside down in a larger bowl. Hold the corn cob on the smaller bowl. Slice 1/2 off top of the kernels. Then scrape off the rest, scraping down to the cob. The bowl will catch all the corn bits. In large skillet heat bacon drippings over medium high heat. Add corn and water and reduce heat to low. Cook until thick and then season with salt and pepper.
