Sweet Picking

About this time each year in the lower south comes one of my favorite seasons, the harvesting of the sweet Silver King corn from the fields in Baldwin county, Loxley AL to be exact. Now I've already told you the varying types of sweet corn and what to look for in finding the sweetest. And I've mentioned before the importance of picking corn early in the morning before the sun gets too high, keeping it cold on ice as you transport it home, all in the sake of retaining the sweetness and the just picked flavor. But I'll say this one more time – it is very important to get on with however you plan on its storage before the sugars turn to starch.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe for tomato pie, I think I'm becoming obsessed with making my own tomato pie! I like your seasonings and the addition of fresh corn, yum;-). I also like your idea of making two pies, one to share is a great idea and will definitely make you a well liked neighbor;-)
