The other day I stopped at Locally Grown Gardens (LGG) and picked up this produce and a few drinks and I had to take a picture of this box. I didn't arrange it- at all. I snapped this photo out in my backyard and (you can take a peek at the striped chair cushions, the box is on top of the outdoor table)
This produce from LGG is unbelievable. Let's start with the South Carolina peaches.
South Carolina peaches
These peaches rule. They're not cheap. I'm not gonna lie about that. The taste is outstanding....they're so flavorful. I've handed a few of them out & have had a few people say, "Damn, that's a good peach. Ya got anymore?" I like the peaches perfectly ripe- when they're all drippy and messy and just phenomenal. I like to eat them whole or slice them up and mix them with blueberries for a fruit salad.
The blueberries get a very high thumbs up and taste like they're just picked from a blueberry bush. By the way-- if you've ever picked blueberries (I have-- at my grandparents...), it's super labor intensive. I'll pick 'em (if I have to:), but I'd much rather buy them. :) I've been eating these blueberries as a snack (you don't need sugar) & sometimes mixing with the peaches. I believe the blueberries are from Michigan (but don't quote me on that).
They're from Tennessee and I haven't tried the orange one yet. The red tomato, I simply sliced up and scattered with salt and pepper and ate it. They're red and super juicy and I plan to buy a few more for BLTs.
I fired up the grill for a while- so it could get blazin' hot.
I put the ears of corn (husks on) in the sink and soaked them in cold water for about 10 minutes. I then removed the corn and patted them dry with a towel. I pulled back the husks and pulled off the silk (which comes off easily) and made sure the corn was dry. I brushed on a mix of olive oil, butter, salt and pepper on the corn and pulled the husks back over the corn.
I placed the corn on the grill for about 12 minutes. I checked the corn a couple of times and turned them as needed. When the corn was done. I let them set for a few minutes... pulled back the husks with a glove (please do this or you'll get burned) and brushed the corn with a light mix of mayo and added parmesan cheese.
This corn totally rocked with the cheese and mayo. I'm normally more of a corn purist-- but this was really good. I plan to roast more corn and if you have any suggestions for toppings... recipes etc...please let me know:) Please!
