Corn is one of my absolute favourite vegetables. I always wait with great anticipation for the fresh Ontario peaches and cream variety that is so bountiful in August. Some nights I'll just eat three ears for dinner, but as this isn't practical on a year round basis, I've collected a wide variety of other recipes to try and fulfil those mid winter cravings.
Dad's Corn Custard - A family favourite Chile Corn Casserole - Incredibly simply

2 ½ cups corn kernels (5 ears fresh or frozen)
1 Tbs. baking powder
½ lb. Monterey Jack cheese, chopped
½ lb. Cheddar cheese. Chopped
4 fresh green chiles, peeled and seeded and chopped
3 Tbs. sugar
9 eggs
3 cups heavy cream
1 Tbs. salt

  1. In a food processor combine corn, baking powder, both cheeses and sugar until corn kernels are just broken down. Do not puree.

  3. Pour corn & egg mixture into a greased 3 quart baking dish and bake for 1 hour or until set.
Serving Suggestions & Notes:

This dish is a family favourite at Thanksgiving and Christmas, with fierce competition over who gets to take home the leftovers. The recipes can be cut in half for a regular meal as well. Cooking time varies greatly depending on the over you're using. It will take at least 1 hour to set (even when halved).
