“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.
“Beef stew is one of these recipes that is perfect this time of year! Now when we make stew I make a huge batch that means I can have leftovers for my lunch the next day!! Using my 8-quart crock means that I have space to make a batch big enough to have the leftovers!! ”
Dublin Coddle Recipe – An easy to make delicious and hearty traditional Irish winter stew with potatoes, sausages, and bacon.
I have two things to say today: ‘Lo there, friends! Supwcha der, sham!? That’s probably all I know in Irish slang, but I’m also just stating the obvious – it’s Irish week! St. Pat’s is around the corner and Dublin Coddle is in order.

Irish stew, which is probably better known, is actually a little boring flavor-wise in my opinion as it’s just a water or stock base, but adding stout is so much better. While you can use Guinness, I would suggest something else as Guinness doesn’t have all that much depth of flavor. Whatever you use, though, the beer helps to tenderize the meat as it cooks low and slow. The flavor gets right into the meat and carrots, making this so comforting and tasty.
Dublin Coddle is a traditional bacon, sausage, potato, and onion stew. It’s believed to have been initially created to use-up leftovers but has evolved into a beloved Irish classic. My Irish friends tell me that every house in Ireland has their own version, with subtle variations depending on the cook’s preferences. Some cooks may use ham in place of the bacon or they may add carrots for color.
The stew is slowly simmered in the oven and seasoned simply with salt and black pepper. A loaf of Irish soda bread to sop up the juice is a must. perfectly suited for any day, but especially festive for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
