This week I have been mostly eating...

Sweetcorn! And there is still plenty more in the freezer.

As soon as you pick a cob the sugars start to turn to starch so I you don't plan to cook it immediately chuck the whole thing in the freezer and then cook it from frozen, the leaves are a little tricky to get off but persevere and you'll get there.

All of these cobs are from my Swift sweetcorn plants which I had intended to plant close together to encourage them to produce baby sweetcorn. Unfortunately the germination of my Swallow sweetcorn plants, intended for the corn on the cob, was so dreadful that I had to abandon the baby sweetcorn plan; well you can't go without corn on the cob can you?
