It's a sin 2. Gluttony

Ahhhhh. The first sweetcorn of the season, with slatherings of butter.
No photos, just a greasy keyboard from the remains of the butter.

Bliss.

Perfection isn't it. One of the vegetables that definitely tastes better straight from the garden. Amazing how so much sweetness be packed into those little kernels!

Can't beat home grown crops picked straight to the table and into the mouth.

Oh wonderful. Our neighbour gave us some of his and we barbecued them - delicious! We're going to grow them next year. Gluttony is the best of the sins, I think.

There is nothing so comforting as "comfort food" at its best ? LOL

Hi Happy, such a perfect choice for gluttony. If it weren't so tasty, and butter is a must, it would be considered too messy to eat for those neatniks among us. To every rule is the exception.

Hi HM .... you've made me feel VERY hungry all of a sudden!
I've grown sweetcorn for the first time this year - but how do I know when they're ready? :)

Hi HM - thanks for that. I've just been and tried it, but the liquid is still clear so I'll give it another day or two! I'm really looking forward to eating our own cobs! :)

Mmmmm - picked my first cobs today and I am going to break my no butter rule :)
