Sweet Corn Shooters
This past spring Ben and I were asked to participate in a silent auction with the proceeds benefitting the Kansas City Arts Community. We jumped at the opportunity to be a part of such a great cause and donated a private Four course meal for Four in the comfort of the highest bidder’s own home. The winners of the meal cashed in a few weeks ago, and Connie & Tina opened their kitchen and home to us where we prepared some creations from our blog and some new flavors including a sweet corn shooter that kicked off the evening.
For this special evening, Ben used the very last of his father’s last sweet corn that he harvested upon retiring. As a member of the Pieper family, it was almost like a right of passage or initiation by participating in the sweet corn harvest. The corn would be boiled, shocked in ice water, and then moved to the kitchen table where it would be cut off the cob and then portioned out into freezer bags. This process ensured that the Pieper sweet corn could be enjoyed year round by the family and allowed us to create a new recipe to share with you.
