“This recipe for Southern Milk and Honey Corn on The Cob will be one of the best corn on the cob recipes you will have ever try this season hands down; made with delicious Florida sweet corn, simmered slowly in whole milk, organic honey, unsalted butter, and seasoned to perfection with Cajun spices, kosher salt, and freshly ground peppercorns. So darn good you won’t even bother with extra butter or salt.
Sweet corn used to be a sign of summer when I lived up north and the Midwest, but in Florida, it’s a crop for the fall, winter, and spring. So now is the perfect time for me to get a head start sharing some of my favorite springtime and Summer recipes such as my recipe for Southern Milk and Honey Corn on The Cob.”
“In sunny Florida, we tend to enjoy deliciously super sweet varieties of corn, They have more natural sugars than some of the other varieties of corn, which tend to bring out the natural flavors more so when simmered in milk, honey, butter, and seasoning.”
From Sarah: Heidy lived in Haines City Florida until recently. That is where Danny grew up. Lake Wales is the next town South of there. Part of the property that Lake Kissimmee State Park manages is in Haines City.
“This quick and easy soup was a BIG hit. When I served it, my youngest claimed he didn’t like pot stickers and wasn’t going to eat them. Then he tried a bite and immediately changed his mind. Once we ladle up our soup, we just cut the pot stickers into smaller bits with the side of our spoon. It’s a small price to pay for a meal that’s on the table in about 20 minutes. Feel free to add more vegetables to this soup. I think mushrooms would be great, but since not everyone around here agrees with me, I leave them out.”
We have been getting lots of snow this winter, which is great for the drought, ski season, and soup days. I love warming up to a bowl of comforting soup on a cold day. Ok, on really cold and snowy days, I don’t leave the house, I stay inside where it is warm and toasty, but I still appreciate a bowl of hot soup.
We are currently loving this Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder. It is the perfect meal for winter!
Josh, unlike me, loves to get outside when there is a big snowstorm. He hits the ski slopes as often as possible. When he gets home, he is ready for warm, comfort food…and this chowder always hits the spot!
