Nirvana is a corn field.
ZoMG I fucking love raw sweet corn. No cooking needed. :)
I husked it in my office myself.

What foods enlighten your consciousness?

Sushi is the obvious one that comes to mind first for me.
Certain types of tea.
Expedition bread.
Raw milk cheddar.
Local apples in Autumn.
Ripe peaches.

I did have some amaaaaazing fresh corn Saturday night, though. I soaked it in water for 10 minutes and put it on the grill for about half an hour. I never liked corn as a kid, but I have come to appreciate it.

A few weeks ago our CSA had a corn pick. I ate corn in the field. Oh wow, nothing better.

Raw milk cheese is really amazing. I had some at the Cap Brewery tasting that really impressed me. I wasn't aware you could sell it legally in the US.

What's expedition brad?

I thought there was a weird law about selling raw milk cheese in the US, too. Maybe something changed, because I just started seeing it within the past year or two.

Expedition bread is a hearty bread with several different whole grains that Meshel and I buy from Cress Spring Bakery. I keep meaning to go to their real location in Blue Mounds, but the Farmer's Market is so much more convenient.

Maybe the laws have slackened. We're becoming like the French! They have raw milk cheeses everywhere. We're such uncouth, uncultured philistines.

I suppose that's a little redundant.

Aha, from the FDA website:

Raw Milk Cheeses
The FDA allows the manufacture and interstate sale of raw milk cheeses that are aged for at least 60 days at a temperature not less than 35 degrees Fahrenheit. "However, recent research calls into question the effectiveness of 60-day aging as a means of pathogen reduction," says Sheehan.

The FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) is currently examining the safety of raw milk cheeses and plans to develop a risk profile for these cheeses. This information will help FDA risk managers make future decisions regarding the regulation of these products to protect public health.

I just stumbled upon the blog of someone who worked there and he says:"Everything is organic, all the grains are ground fresh every week, all the breads are naturally fermented, all the bread is baked in a wood fired brick oven."

I packed myself a marvelous lunch of hummus I made last night, expedition bread, little sungold tomatoes, carrots, and almonds, and then I left it on the table at home so I had to eat at the lame food court!

At least I won't have to worry about packing lunch tomorrow morning when I come in early.

Oh. Tristess! That sounded loverly.

Raw sweet corn always tastes too earthy to me for some reason.

I think I would die a happy man if I were to drown in tiramisu.

Tiramisu is a little to coffee flavored for me. I find I only want my coffee to taste like coffee, not my desserts.

Another reminder of why I'm glad I'm not a coffee achiever.

Why have so few people tried raw corn? It's clearly much better than cooked corn.
abmann From: abmann Date: August 8th, 2006 08:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree. Seems we're in the minority. Sev, Fox and Aetrix all tried raw but prefer cooked.

haha man i grew up on sweet corn and never thought to try it raw. now i don't really eat it because my stomach is such a jerk.

personally i love avocadoes and could eat them all the time forever. only really good ripe ones though. also, crab legs. mmm indulgent
