Ingredients

  • cobs of corn
  • 1  Pound  bacon, cut into lardons

Directions

Boil corn until fully cooked. Shock corn in cold water.

Using a knife, remove the kernels from the corn.  

In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, griddle your bacon until desired crispness.

Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and rest on plate with paper towel to absorb excess fat. Pour off the excess fat in the pan, reserving 2 tablespoons rendered bacon fat to cook the corn. Add the corn to the bacon fat and sauté over medium heat until heated through, about 1 minute.

Toss with bacon and serve warm.

 

Corn Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Corn Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
