At the Valencia Farmer's Market (a store on 24th & Valencia), it's a smart thing that the owner, Kevin, peels away one strip of each corn husk, so customers don't have to. The visual does it, and I'm hungry. Two corn ears it is-one white, and one yellow.
First, I put away seven pounds of pork butt (recipe and report coming soon), along with various fruit. Then I pull the rest of the husk off the white corn because it's the bigger piece. Onto a plate and into the microwave it goes, for one minute. Too bad I don't have any lime around, because the citrus enhances the sweetness of the corn.
Next, I lay the corn on its side and butter it with my left hand, keeping the right hand as far away as possible. I'm avoiding butter or corn on that hand because it's going in the cayenne spice jar next, for a finishing touch. I spread out the leftovers of today's NY Times and set to work eating the sweet and spicy corn. It may be a funny show for the neighbors across the way - I can't help it, I pick up the plate and lick it, more than once.
